Blood Safety, Supply, and Innovations Addressed at Conference

As the cost of blood rises, supplies shrink and new infectious agents threaten blood safety, how do medical institutions improve patient outcomes by implementing transfusion alternatives in conjunction with blood conservation programs? These questions, and the positive steps that can be taken by individual physicians and medical institutions, will be discussed at the Society for the Advancement of Blood Management's (SABM) Fifth Annual National Meeting in Jersey City, New Jersey, on September 15 to 17, 2006.

Discussion topics at the meeting will include:

'In an era of continued concern about the cost and safety of blood transfusions, the practice of blood conservation makes great medical sense. Our annual meeting brings together the latest advances in the field and encourages dialog across multiple disciplines for physicians and other healthcare providers,' said John Adamson, MD, President of SABM.

SABM is an educational organization comprised of a national network of medical practitioners from a wide variety of medical and scientific disciplines who are dedicated to the advancement of optimal blood management in clinical practice through education, cooperation and research. SABM works to facilitate cooperation among existing and future blood conservation, bloodless medicine and surgery programs as well as enhance the clinical and scientific aspects of transfusion practice.
