The Blood Service has developed a free Transfusion Orientation Pack to promote safe transfusion practice and deliver education and training materials to JMOs.
This follows a successful pilot in 2016 which was based on focus groups conducted specifically with JMOs to find out what resources would be best suited to their needs.
The pack includes a Transfusion Overview Poster, Blood Prescribing Lanyard Card, Acute Transfusion Reactions Lanyard Card, Warfarin Reversal Lanyard Card, and Transfusion Checklist.

Blood Service in Brief Edition 21 is here! This issue you can read about the results of our recent hepatitis E virus prevalence study, new strategies we've introduced to improve phenoytped red cell order fulfilment, how you can participate in our transfusion education survey and more.
A short online survey will soon be distributed to laboratories around the country to help determine transfusion–related education and training requirements.
