Program Description: Practicing Transfusion Medicine can involve challenging ethical situations because blood is a voluntarily donated precious medical resource with a limited shelf life. Both supply and demand can be uncertain. This program will explore ethical dilemmas such as resource allocation when demand is anticipated to exceed supply, blood refusal, donor incentives, informed consent, and introducing investigational treatments. These topics will be approached from the perspective of both an ethicist and a transfusion medicine specialist, with the goal of applying a practical ethics framework.
