Program Description
Blood bank personnel and leadership may find it difficult to engage with hospital administration to communicate needs or challenges. This program will introduce the knowledge needed to successfully communicate transfusion medicine topics to hospital administrators. Given as a didactic presentation, Dr. Barnhard will draw on her experience of engagement with upper levels of hospital administration to introduce key concepts in this topic.

Learning Objectives

  • Compare and contrast the key perspectives of hospital administrators and transfusion medicine experts.
  • Outline the key elements and indicators of horizontal and vertical alignment in hospital-based transfusion medicine.
  • Identify and engage the key clinical stakeholders in hospital-based transfusion medicine.
  • Identify natural allies in hospital-based transfusion medicine.
  • Outline the approach to communicating with levels of hospital administration.
