Practical, interactive teaching designed to improve transfusion practice for the non-specialist.

Date: 28 February 2018 and 26 March 2018
Location: Postgraduate Centre Birmingham
Target: Core Medical and ACCS trainees

When does a patient need blood, plasma or platelets? Are you happy managing complications of transfusion? How do you counsel your patients before giving them blood?

This course is aimed to give you confidence in managing most commonly encountered scenarios relating to transfusion practice. It comprises of two face-to-face days, structured with interactive learning sessions, and three online tutorials using social media. 

During the course we will encourage doctors to undertake a transfusion-related Quality Improvement Programme within their own Trust, providing ideas, support and guidance on topical areas.

We want you to come away from the course ready to apply your knowledge, improve the way you care for patients who may need a transfusion and most importantly to feel enthused about transfusion medicine and haematology.

Note that this course takes place on two separate days, and attendance on both is required. The course also includes three online tutorials.
