The establishment of a Patient Blood Management (PBM) Program serves as a foundation for good medical practice and evidence-based care for optimizing the outcomes of patients who may be at risk for an unnecessary transfusion. Preparation for The Joint Commission/AABB certification for Patient Blood Management involves establishing clear, consistent protocols and processes that are universally adopted throughout an organization. Compiling information for certification can be overwhelming. This program will provide an overview of how to obtain PBM certification. Three different organizations: a University Hospital, a Hospital System and a large community teaching hospital will all provide experiences of their journey. Examples will be provided of what worked and what did not. This eCast is a must for anyone seeking PBM certification and wanting to take your program to the next level.
