Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,
Among the current problems in transfusion medicine, lack of advance practices and knowledge has been the most reported worry worldwide. Even the “heavy practitioners” have suffered from it. Knowledge in the branch of transfusion medicine has been progressively revolutionized. Standard practices in the past are now being considered unfitting. Our objective is to rectify this problem by updating our skill set. As transfusion professionals, our goal is to stop these inappropriate practices and uplift our level of transfusion practices to be in line with current evidence-based medicine. Our focus is to ensure patient safety and improve outcomes through this education. Our plan is to hold this course several times a year and reach out to everyone in our beloved domain.

Thank you,

Dr. Abdulmajeed Abdulaziz Alabdullateef
Medical Director of Central Blood Bank
Transfusion Medicine Consultant

Welcome Note

Why did we think about this course?

Lack of knowledge about Transfusion Medicine has been reported worldwide among
health professionals even among those who are described as “heavy prescribers”. 

This knowledge has been revolutionized progressively. Many of what was once considered astandard practice would be considered a very inappropriate practice today.  All of this
gave us as transfusion professionals the sense of mission to elevate the level of transfusion
practices to be in line with evidence-based medicine. Ensuring patient safety and improving outcomes is the ultimate goal of all these efforts.  Our aim is to be able to conduct such course several times a year and be able reach out to everyone in our beloved kingdom.

About The Course

This is the first course of its kind to be held in Saudi Arabia.

The course aims to guide clinicians of all specialties in developing best practices and grow essential knowledge in transfusion medicine. It is well proven that such an educational approach will significantly reduce unnecessary risks to patients and relieve unnecessary costs on health system.

The course will contain lectures that cover all aspects of blood transfusion from Vein to Vein as well as interactive sessions.

Why to attend?

Blood transfusion is among the most common medical procedures.   Nevertheless, since medical school, physicians receive little or no formal training in transfusion medicine.

Therefore, studies that monitor transfusion practices almost always conclude that the amount of inappropriate practices is way more than conceived.
On the other hand, education and training in the field in transfusion always translate into remarkable improvement in patient safety.

This is your chance to get to learn from and interact with experts in this field in Saudi Arabia.
