AABB has developed a new education series, Basics in Patient Blood Management. This eCast series will help hospitals get started with a Patient Blood Management (PBM) program or begin to operationalize basic elements that they have in place into a cohesive program. Leading pioneers in the field convened to explain the value of a PBM program and key elements, strategies, and tactics for a successful program.
The program is divided into two parts:
This program is made possible through the generous support of Haemonetics
There are no assessments provided with this program. This is an educational eCast series where students can review the content as many times as they want during the access period.
Registration and access information is provided for both parts of this program offering:
Basics in Patient Blood Management 4-Part Series
After registering for the program, each learner will receive access to all recorded eCasts in this series via the AABB Education Platform (program located in “My Courses”). This program is for individuals (group viewing is not available).
PBM for Ordering Clinicians
This is a complimentary downloadable video that meets ordering clinician’s education requirements for AABB/TJC PBM Hospital Certification.
The 4-part Basics in Patient Blood Management program is eligible for 1.5 continuing education credits/contact hours for General Participation, California Nurse, California Lab Personnel or Florida Lab Personnel. The number and type of credits awarded for this program was determined by the program duration. This program is not eligible for continuing medical education for physicians. A certificate of participation for the 4-part series will be provided to learners after viewing the videos and completion of a program evaluation.
