The WHO has urged all member states to implement Patient Blood Management (PBM) as the global standard of care. PBM is evidence-based practice which includes management of anemia, optimization of hemostasis, utilizing multidisciplinary strategies to provide better patient outcomes with a truly patient-centered approach. PBM cannot be successful without a multidisciplinary team. Laboratory professionals possess a special skill set which augments PBM practice and MUST be a part of a comprehensive PBM program.
Learn about PBM and how YOU are poised to play a key role in solidifying PBM at your institution.
At the end of this session, the attendee will be able to:
- Discuss the risks of transfusion, the pillars of PBM and the concept of Blood Health
- Describe the current state of the science regarding restrictive transfusion practice as part of PBM
- Recognize the role laboratory professionals play within a comprehensive PBM program
