SABM advances best practice to thousands of healthcare providers through CME programs and the creation of learning tools and development of evidence based clinical pathways.

From November 1-5, 2021, the Society for the Advancement of Blood Management (SABM) will celebrate the 15th Annual SABM Patient Blood Management Awareness Week(R). SABM invites healthcare organizations worldwide to participate in this week dedicated to educating patients and healthcare professionals about patient blood management and transfusion overuse.
