AABB proudly supports Patient Blood Management Awareness Week, taking place Nov. 2-6. The Association is dedicated to increasing public and professional understanding of how PBM can improve patient outcomes. This has become particularly important during the COVID-19 pandemic, as there have been significant fluctuations in the supply and need for blood. To support this effort, AABB provides educational resources
and promotes evidence-based best practices through the Standards for a Patient Blood Management Program
The Society for the Advancement of Blood Management (SABM) also released a number of PBM resources, including a downloadable PBM poster and two complimentary webinars. AABB encourages members to visit the SABM Patient Blood Management Awareness Week web page
for additional information.
