PATHOLOGISTS

Background

From September to December 2011, the PBCO in collaboration with the BC Transfusion Medicine Advisory Group (TMAG), hosted a six module webinar education series entitled Transfusion Reaction Education for BC Pathologists. The series was developed to promote understanding of the elements of the provincial minimum standards of practice, to review the principles and practice for investigating and reporting transfusion reactions and to apply this knowledge using case studies.  The series was offered a second time as an on-demand online course through the PHSA Learning Hub from April – June 2012, and again for a third and final time from July - September, 2012.
