At the Blood Service, we are committed to ongoing quality improvement and patient care.
We have developed numerous successful and productive partnerships with blood improvement collaboratives and individual clinicians.
Our most recent partnership was with Dr Philip Crispin and his team at Canberra Hospital and Health Services. The 1.5-year project focused on improving blood management and transfusion appropriateness in obstetrics to reduce red cell transfusion.
Through the project, a number of clinical practice improvement tools were developed to guide decision making and patient care.
Dr Clive Seed and colleagues have recently published refinements to their model which the Blood Service uses to estimate the residual risk for transfusion-transmitted hepatitis B in Australia.
