About this webinar

We now have to live with COVID–19, and optimising patient outcome during this catastrophic healthcare crisis is the number one priority. Patient blood management is a fundamental strategy to improve patient outcomes and should be given high priority in this crisis situation. The aim of this webinar is to provide healthcare providers with information regarding how to apply established principles of patient blood management during the COVID–19 pandemic, including: blood supply and donor management; anaemia diagnosis and treatment; monitoring of Hb and transfusion; and coagulation and thrombosis.

Login will be available from 17:45, but the broadcast will not start until 18:00.
