Transfusion Orientation Pack

Promoting safe transfusion practice to junior medical officers 

Australian Red Cross Lifeblood has developed the free Transfusion Orientation Pack to promote safe transfusion practice and deliver education and training materials to junior medical officers.

This follows a successful pilot in 2016 which was based on focus groups conducted specifically with junior medical officers to find out what resources would be best suited to their needs.

The following tools are included in the pack:

There were over 3500 packs distributed nationally in 2020.
