Patient Blood Management Guidelines

12 May 2017

The Patient Blood Management (PBM) Guidelines are a series of six modules that focus on evidence-based PBM, written for clinicians treating specific patient groups. Modules include: Critical Bleeding/Massive Transfusion (2011), Perioperative (2012), Medical (2012), Critical Care (2012), Obstetrics and Maternity (2015), and Neonatal and Paediatrics (2016).
By visiting the National Blood Authority website, clinicians can access electronic versions of the modules, and the accompanying Quick Reference Guides. For clinicians practising in Australia and New Zealand, hard copies can be ordered free of charge.
With the suite of modules now completed, the National Blood Authority is considering a broader scope for the review and update process across the entire suite of modules, to ensure that modules maintain their currency. A progress update on the PBM Guidelines, including the review process, promotion, education and implementation activities is available on the National Blood Authority website.
Wider clinical input into the review, update and development of the guidelines is encouraged; any comments or queries can be directed to the [email protected].
