Patient Blood Management (PBM)

Patient Blood Management (PBM) is individualised and evidence based care that aims to limit a patient’s exposure to blood products and thereby improve patient outcomes. It is not limited to one clinical specialty or discipline. It improves clinical outcomes for all patients who may be at risk of receiving a blood transfusion. Therefore staff working with medical, surgical, critical care, obstetric and paediatric patients will benefit from this eLearning course. This course is a prerequisite for discipline specific courses, specifically perioperative. More Information
