Haemovigilance

Haemovigilance is defined as ‘a set of surveillance procedures covering the whole transfusion chain from the collection of blood and its components to the follow-up of its recipients, intended to collect and assess information on unexpected or undesirable effects resulting from the therapeutic use of labile blood products, and to prevent their occurrence and recurrence’.

This working party brings together ISBT members working in the field of Haemovigilance associated with donors and the transfusion of blood components. 

Membership is open to individual ISBT members with an interest and practical involvement in Haemovigilance. For more information, please contact Jo Wiersum (Chairperson): j.wiersum(at)tripnet.nl
