The best online guidance to safe blood transfusion and management

Blood transfusions have been used to save lives for hundreds of years and their benefits are well documented. In veterinary practices, the use of transfusion medicine has become increasingly popular due to its effectiveness in treating both critically ill and surgical patients. This programme aims to help veterinary professionals improve their knowledge in all aspects of transfusion medicine, from understanding when a transfusion is required to the different techniques for safe blood collection and administration. 


What you’ll learn... 

  • Topics will range between several key subjects within transfusion medicine, such as blood banking, product management, and conditions such as anaemia and adverse transfusion reactions, among others.  

  • The fundamental principles of blood types will also be covered, and discussion will be held around how and when to use compatibility testing to maximise transfusion efficacy.  

  • The course will ensure that you have a good understanding of the aims and risks of transfusions and learn how to take a proactive and significant role in transfusion cases. 


Why choose this programme? 

  • This programme will guide you through 8 online modules, each module is built around six lessons, two reflective studies, different course notes and weekly summary videos.  

  • The interactive approach of each session will help you retain new knowledge more effectively, with regular assessments testing your skills as you progress.
