2020 ASSH Seminar 4: Principles of Transfusion Medicine
Enhance Your Understanding of Transfusion Medicine and Haemovigilance: Join Our Educational Seminar!
Whether you aspire to be a surgeon, obstetrician, or emergency doctor, understanding the importance of blood transfusions can be life-saving for your patients. From surgeries and childbirth to managing severe anaemia, coagulopathy, and massive traumatic bleeding, transfusions play a crucial role. However, it’s not just about administering blood properly—it’s about safeguarding the entire supply chain, including donation, storage, transport, and processing. This comprehensive approach is known as haemovigilance and is vital for preventing complications like sepsis and haemolytic transfusion reactions.
Join our highly anticipated fourth seminar of the year, featuring renowned haematologist and transfusion medicine specialist, Prof Erica Wood. As a passionate advocate for haemovigilance, Prof Wood serves on the WHO’s Expert Advisory Panel on Transfusion Medicine and is the president of the International Haemovigilance Network. Her expertise and insights will provide invaluable knowledge and understanding in this critical field.
