AABB regularly surveys its members for information about blood collection, utilization and current practices. The AABB survey results are shared with AABB membership, who use them for benchmarking and to better understand the current state of the field. Additionally, AABB uses these data to identify industry trends and to inform AABB’s decision making, planning and policy positions.
These surveys were intended for AABB’s hospital-based members to help understand the trends and practices impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The questionnaire also included relevant/current issues relating to COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma (CCP) collection and transfusion. AABB used the results of these surveys in public statements to help the media, government agencies, other health care organizations, and the public understand the impact of the current outbreak on the care of patients requiring transfusion support.
