The first of its kind in the world, this innovative app will complement the existing range of resources for everything you need to know about blood and transfusion at any stage of career.
The app was developed following extensive consultation with junior medical officers (JMOs) to find out what tools would be best suited to their needs. It includes information to support the prescription of red cells and platelets, diagnostic information about transfusion reactions, games and more.
By providing bedside access to transfusion education tools and resources, the iTransfuse App promotes safe, appropriate and evidence-based transfusion.
