The Transfusion Practitioner forum

04/15/2019

Come and join us at the TP sessions in Basel

Transfusion Practitioners play a key role in driving and influencing clinical blood management and safe transfusion practice, including Patient Blood Management (PBM) initiatives, with the primary goal to improve patient safety and enhance outcomes. The Transfusion Practitioners (TP) forum has been established within the Clinical Transfusion Working Party to promote the role and value of TP’s within the international blood sector. The forum provides a platform for international TP collaboration; where knowledge and experience can be shared to support development of initiatives and practices of safe transfusion practice, implementation of patient blood management and haemovigilance.

The Transfusion Practitioner forum has planned engaging sessions at the Basel congress to help you connect with TP’s, and understand the significant roles they undertake.
