Joint Commission releases updated Patient Blood Management Certification standards

The new standards were updated to meet the AABB’s guidelines and will go into effect on January 1, 2018.

The Joint Commission’s Patient Blood Management Certification program was developed with the AABB, an international association focusing on cellular therapies, transfusion medicine, and blood management. The certification is based on the AABB’s Standards for a Blood Management Program and is aimed at educating hospitals on the benefits of an evidence-based, multidisciplinary approach to the transfusion decision-making process.
