Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the strategies that blood collection establishments could consider to address the risk of iron deficiency in whole blood donors.
  • Summarize the donors' perspective for managing iron health.
  • Appreciate previous educational approaches to mitigate iron depletion in whole blood donors.

Description: It was been demonstrated that whole blood donors with specific attributes (e.g., young, female, frequent donors) are at risk for iron deficiency. This session will describe industry recommendations for addressing donor iron health. Canadian and American donors' perspectives on educational approaches will be summarized, including operational impact from planned and/or actual interventions (including ferritin testing). The Australian experience with donor iron education and other initiatives will also be shared.

Overall, the session will provide tips for successful strategic interventions to improve donor iron health, taking into consideration evidence-based findings, the donor perspective, and operational impacts to the blood supply.

The audience will gain a better appreciation for the rationale behind the need for a donor iron management plan as well as valuable insights for the successful execution of a donor health initiative.
