Make it count: Choose every blood product for transfusion wisely
Join the RACP Lead Fellow, and Vice President of the ANZSBT, Dr Anastazia Keegan in a discussion about the new top-five recommendations on low-value care in the area of blood transfusion. Blood transfusions can be lifesaving, however, we are still seeing a reliance on blood and blood products in circumstances where it has been proven to be unnecessary.
In this webinar, we explore why blood is a scarce and precious resource and why physicians need to choose every blood product for transfusion wisely.
