Winter is always a difficult time for blood stocks. Avoidable transfusion and inappropriate use of O D-negative red blood cells remain a challenge for organisations, particularly considering the recent Amber alert issued by NHS Blood & Transplant.

This 1-hour webinar is free to access and will include:

  • A 40 minute presentation about avoidable transfusion and inappropriate use of O D negative red blood cells
  • A 15 minute interactive Q&A session

An excellent opportunity for CPD through reflective practice with the following learning themes:

  • Avoidable transfusions in haematinic deficiency and inappropriate use of O D negative red blood cells reported to SHOT
  • Overview of PBM activities from all 4 UK Blood Services
  • Q&A with all presenters + UKTLC, PBM England and the National Transfusion Practitioner Network

This webinar is relevant to all healthcare professionals involved in transfusion and patient blood management nursing staff, laboratory staff, clinicians, transfusion practitioners, as well as haemovigilance and risk management specialists.
