This is the official home of Australia’s most recognised online courses relating to clinical transfusion practice including blood specimen collection, transportation, use and patient blood management.
This site has been developed for health professionals, including medical, nursing and midwifery, plus students and people working with blood in their day to day jobs, such as hospital orderlies/couriers and specimen collectors.
New courses based on the Patient Blood Management Guidelines: Module 3 – Medical will be available soon.
These include Medical, Cardiac, Chronic Kidney Disease, Gastrointestinal, Cancer and Chronic Transfusion.
Mistakes in collecting blood specimens can start a chain of interconnected events leading to the transfusion of incorrect blood.
