April 17, 2024

AABB is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the new AABB Leadership Certificate in Blood Banking and Transfusion Medicine, a specialized leadership training for emerging laboratory leaders, just in time for Medical Laboratory Professionals Week.

The program, generously supported by QuidelOrtho, aims to educate the next generation on the core concepts necessary to cultivate effective leaders in the blood and biotherapies field.

The program is a self-paced, multi-media online leadership training developed in accordance with ANSI/ASTM E2659-18, Standard Practice for Certificate Programs. The curriculum was developed through an extensive needs analysis with the input of expert advisory panels, and the content and learning experience uses the ADDIE (Analyze, Design, Develop, Implement and Evaluate) model of instructional design. Additionally, AABB engaged a leading instructional design company – which also developed the AABB and Canadian Blood Services individual donor assessment training modules – to create the interactive eLearning experience.

 Modules address a broad array of topics:

  • Blood bank and transfusion medicine fundamentals.
  • Communication management.
  • Personnel leadership and management.
  • Operations management.
  • Information technology systems.
  • Administration.
  • Quality.
  • Regulatory compliance.

Those who purchase registration will gain access to the program on May 1 via the AABB Education Platform
