We are committed to improving blood user compliance
The Blood Services in South Africa have jointly published the educational video(s). This teaching tool is aimed at nurses and clinicians using blood and blood products. It is recommended that staff revise the content through repeated viewings on a 6 monthly basis, and also that new staff joining the hospital/facility are shown the video as part of in-service training or induction programs.
Ordering and administering blood
In response to incorrect blood components being transfused as reported in the National Haemovigilance Report, the Blood Services in South Africa have produced a 40 minute educational DVD about the ordering and administration of blood products. The aim of the DVD is to improve blood-user compliance thereby ensuring safe transfusion practice.
