ASCLS Webinar - Patient Blood Management: The Why, or Better Yet, Why Not?

When:  Mar 23, 2023 from 12:00 to 13:00 (CT)

Description: The World Health Organization (WHO) has urged all member states to implement Patient Blood Management (PBM) as the global standard of care. PBM is evidence-based practice which includes management of anemia, optimization of hemostasis, and utilizing multidisciplinary strategies to provide better patient outcomes with a truly patient-centered approach. PBM cannot be successful without a multidisciplinary team. Laboratory professionals possess a special skill set which augments PBM practice and must be a part of a comprehensive PBM program.

Learn about PBM and how you are poised to play a key role in solidifying PBM at your institution.
