Program Description: A consistent assessment of the severity of donor adverse reactions is critical for understanding their impact. It will also help your donor center engage in comparative trend analysis with other blood collections, both locally and globally. This program will include a review of the proposed severity grading of blood donor adverse event tools developed by the AABB Donor Hemovigilance Working Group. Preliminary results from the international validation study will be presented along with several case studies to help the audience evaluate the clinical validity and applicability of the severity grading.
