RN and patient   Nursing Education Activities 

We are offering multiple nursing education opportunities in transfusion medicine for nurses. Click on the titles below for more information

This online learning activity will present information about blood component preparation and compatibility, how to administer blood components and recognition of transfusion reactions with the goal of increasing each participant's knowledge about the blood transfusion process and ultimately improving patient safety. 


This case-based interactive learning activity will review acute transfusion reactions, associated signs and symptoms, expected nursing actions to complete and possible treatment of the reactions. The purpose of the activity is to enable the bedside nurse to incorporate enhanced knowledge of acute transfusion reactions into practice thus improving recognition  and reporting of acute transfusion reactions which is an integral part of hemovigilance.  Improved recognition and reporting will promote transfusion safety and improve blood administration practice.
