AABB Twitter Chat Will Address PBM in Hospitals

November 10, 2021

AABB’s next Twitter chat will explore patient blood management (PBM) in the emergency department (ED). In this chat, Richard R. Gammon, MD, (@RichardGammonMD), medical director at OneBlood, and Chris Bocquet (@ChrisBocPro), senior director, Standards Development and Quality Initiatives at AABB, will explore potential strategies that hospitals can employ to support PBM efforts in the ED, including a restrictive blood transfusion strategy and intravenous iron therapy. Discussion will also focus on how to engage ED physicians in these efforts. The Twitter chat will take place at 3:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Nov. 23. AABB encourages members to follow @AABB and use the hashtag #AABBPEPTalk to join the conversation.
