Quality Guide to the Administrative and Clinical Standards for Patient Blood Management Programs
As patient blood management becomes increasingly recognized as in important contributor to improved outcomes, cost savings, and patient safety, many institutions seek guidance in implementing comprehensive, quality programs. SABM, as the only professional organization whose full focus is on patient blood management, has created the comprehensive standards for such programs. They can be downloaded here. To effectively measure program quality and compliance with standards, SABM is proud to offer a newly published Quality Guide for each of the 12 SABM Standards. This valuable guide is designed to assist those practitioners and institutions that seek to establish a formal organization-wide PBM program to align their quality improvement programs using the framework of the SABM Standards.

Administrative and Clinical Standards for Patient Blood Management Programs, 2nd Edition
Identifying an unmet medical need, SABM has developed the Administrative and Clinical Standards for Patient Blood Management Programs, 2nd Edition®2013. These standards span all activities related to Patient Blood Management (PBM) and are intended to optimize clinical outcomes and improve patient safety.
The PBM Standards are not intended to provide strict indications, contraindications or other criteria for the practice of clinical medicine and surgery. Clinical decisions—the sole responsibility of the health care provider—may vary from patient to patient and are subject to good clinical judgment. As such, the PBM Standards should not be used as the only basis for making case-specific decisions regarding patient recommendations or diagnostic testing.
This document is a dynamic one since new information is rapidly emerging. Those practitioners and institutions that seek to establish a formal organization-wide PBM program should follow these Standards.
