2020 Annual Meeting is going Virtual
REGISTER TODAY BY CLICKING HERE
September 10-12, 2020
Dear SABM community,
After carefully considering all options for this year's SABM Annual Meeting and in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, SABM has decided to cancel the in-person meeting and move to an all-virtual event to be held September 10-12, 2020 which are the originally scheduled dates for the meeting. While we make this decision with a heavy heart, we are also energized by the prospect of continuing to offer our attendees the exceptional learning and community experience you deserve. Offering a virtual meeting will help make the excellent speakers and content available to a wider audience and we are excited at the prospect of growing our SABM community.
SABM has chosen a state-of-the art virtual meeting platform that combines an innovative learning environment with reliable functionality and intuitive navigation. The schedule will include a mix of live and on-demand sessions, along with an interactive exhibition hall, networking spaces and poster hall.
We understand schedules are challenging as many of us are managing new work and home demands during this time. To ensure you have ultimate flexibility, we are excited to offer 24-hour access to the virtual Annual Meeting platform—allowing you to learn and engage at your own pace no matter where you are in the world or your day. Attendees will also be able to access the platform for an additional month following the conclusion of the meeting.
SABM will provide continuous updates about the 2020 Annual Meeting in the coming days and weeks as planning continues.
Whether this is your first SABM Annual Meeting or you have attended many SABM Annual Meetings, we will make history together in September as we celebrate you, your accomplishments and this remarkable community.
We look forward to seeing you in September.
Patient Blood Management (PBM) is the timely application of evidence-based medical and surgical concepts designed to maintain hemoglobin concentration, optimize hemostasis and minimize blood loss in an effort to improve patient outcome.
The SABM Research Grant, supported by an educational grant from HemoSonics, LLC, is intended to advance the field of patient blood management by supporting an investigator who intends to study methods of advancing the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of patient blood management-related issues or concepts. The grant provides starter funding to further scientific inquiry and clinical knowledge in the field. The application deadline is June 1, 2020.Learn more or donate today.
"As an administrator, you don’t often have something presented to you that improves patient safety, improves clinical outcomes, quality of care -- and also saves money. And that’s exactly what a PBM program does.” - Larry Burns, FACHE, SABM Advisory Director
The SABM Executive Guide shows you how and why you should implement a PBM Program at your hospital.View the Table of Contents. To learn more about purchasing the guide, go to Publications.

Anemia is a condition that indicates there are not enough red blood cells in your circulation to transport sufficient amounts of oxygen to your body’s tissues. Oxygen acts like fuel—it provides energy for your muscles and organs to work. With anemia, other body systems have to compensate to deliver an adequate amount of oxygen to the tissues. For example, the heart beats faster and breathing becomes more rapid as the lungs take in air.
