“Physician Onboarding: What's PBM Got To Do With It?”
Justin D. Kreuter, MD
Medical Director, Blood Donor Center, Mayo Clinic
Patient blood management (PBM) can be beneficial for patients and hospitals. Many facilities have implemented PBM programs in recent years. Like any good process, PBM tends to be ongoing and iterative. How are new physicians made aware of institutional PBM practices? Is the process similar for newly-minted physicians, as well as new hires? During AABB's July 24 #AABBPEPtalk, Justin D. Kreuter, MD, Medical Director, Blood Donor Center, Mayo Clinic, led the discussion on our community’s diverse experiences with onboarding new physicians in the local PBM practice.
AABB is also offering a
PBM pre-meeting workshop ahead of the 2018 AABB Annual Meeting in Boston.
