Program Description
Let’s face it – most pathologists are introverts and love working in the laboratory. When questioned, transfusion medicine doctors can rattle off their hospital transfusion guidelines and effortlessly quote the literature. However, knowing the data is not always enough. Having to confront a busy, insistent clinician when blood products are ordered outside of guidelines or during times of shortage or presenting blood utilization reports to hospital committees can be challenging and uncomfortable for many pathologists. This program will show you how to prepare for these critical conversations; who and how many from the lab should join; how to use your literature and hospital’s data to get your point across; and, how to set and present concise, meaningful, and achievable goals for utilization. This program will conclude revealing how to achieve your patient blood management goals through consensus building.

Learning Objectives
After participating in this educational activity, participants should be able to:

  • Develop skills to have effective communication with clinical colleagues, including ideal times for critical conversations on transfusion practices.
  • Describe ways to prepare for these serious dialogues.
  • Analyze ways to find common goals and the means to reach consensus related to patient blood management.
