National Patient Blood Management Collaborative Resources

A sample of shared resources of the National Patient Blood Management Collaborative

The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care led the National Patient Blood Management Collaborative to support improvements in the management of anaemia and iron deficiency for patients having elective gastrointestinal, gynaecological and orthopaedic surgical procedures.

The Project was funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health. The table below provides links to a small number of resources developed by Collaborative participants. These, and others, formed part of a national set of resources to support broad-based, continual improvements in PBM.
