LOPEZ GONZALEZ, Elena et al. Proposal for training and professional development to improve blood transfusion safety. Infodir [online]. 2022, n.38, e1145.  Epub 01-Ago-2022. ISSN 1996-3521.


The rational use of transfusions is extremely important for the community and for those who practice medicine. This requires constant training events.


To characterize the professional development activities provided to improve the quality of transfusion indication.


An intervention study on professional development activities was carried out. The training actions foreseen in the schedule were given in the first quarter of each year from 2010 to 2020 with updated information on each topic. The staff of the transfusion committee, blood bank and hospital services requiring blood transfusions participated. The activities were carried out with good quality, achieving an adequate level of satisfaction in the trainees since they were conducted in an active manner through the use of the different participatory techniques: lectures, workshop, directed discussions, and group dynamics.


The training program contributes to making the transfusion committee's activity more dynamic, going from a retrospective evaluation of the transfusions already applied, to carrying out this activity before the indication in question is fulfilled. This ensures that each transfusion procedure performed in health institutions is approved by expert personnel in this activity and fully justified with the corresponding criteria, so that patients receive it safely in order to avoid unnecessary transfusions and the risk of adverse reactions and infections.
