Transfusion Medicine Is a Career of Learning!
All professionals who hold American Board of Pathology certification in transfusion medicine/blood banking are required to take a 10-year recertification examination. Residents and transfusion medicine fellows must also prepare for initial certification. Non-transfusion-trained professionals need to bolster their knowledge when they are called to provide coverage for the transfusion service. Concise Guide to Transfusion Medicine was designed to support all professionals for whom continuing education is critical throughout their careers.
This compilation of high-yield summary information is intended to provide ready access to the essential information in transfusion medicine. Presented in a tabular and graphic format rather than dense text, Concise Guide allows rapid review of the key points that practitioners need to know, including evolving developments in pathogen inactivation, patient blood management, donor eligibility, cellular therapy, and other relevant topics. The 28 sections in this new resource are distilled from major AABB texts, including the Technical Manual, and provide a portable, on-the-go reference.
