AABB Blood Survey

2014 Survey Coming Soon

The 2014 AABB Blood Collection and Utilization Survey will be launched in late January 2014. This “light” survey is designed to collect a limited number of key data elements to support understanding of trends in collection and blood transfusion from all AABB institutional members. Baseline denominator data will be collected as well as questions about new products and clinical practice changes. The web-survey invitation will be sent to AABB institutional member contacts. Questions can be directed to

AABB periodically surveys its members for information about blood collection, blood and blood product transfusion and patient blood management activities in their facilities. The results of these surveys are used to support continued development of AABB policy positions and informed decision making.

The engagement and support of AABB members is critical to ensuring a rich and expanding data repository that will move our collective community forward in a data driven manner.

Part I of the 2013 survey report was shared with participants in October. The Final report is now available to AABB Members and includes Collection, Utilization and Patient Blood Management. If your hospital submitted data directly to AABB, a benchmarking report of your blood component utilization will be sent to you directly.
