Using Blood Wisely Toolkit
Blood is a vital and limited health care resource. Using blood wisely ensures that it is available for those who need it most. Yet, inappropriate transfusion practices are common in hospitals. Not only does this put significant strains on Canada’s blood supply, but it also exposes patients to potential harm.
Using Blood Wisely is a national campaign to decrease inappropriate red blood cell transfusion practices in Canada. The campaign is organized by Choosing Wisely Canada in partnership with Canadian Blood Services.
