INTRODUCING TRANSFUSION EVIDENCE "ROUND-UPS"

09/15/2021

Quarterly topic related SRs / RCTs from the SRI Transfusion Evidence Library, selected by ISBT. First edition due September 17, 2021

ISBT are working on an exciting new collaboration the UK based Systematic Review Initiative (SRI) with the aim of providing ISBT members with a selection of Systematic Reviews (SRs) and randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on transfusion related topics, including those published in journals specializing in areas outside of transfusion medicine. We are trialing a quarterly ‘’Round-Up’’ of SRs and RCTs on a specific topic, curated by ISBT.

SRI host the fully searchable libraries that are available free at the point of access to medical practitioners, policy makers and researchers worldwide, providing a comprehensive and up-to-date database of high-quality evidence in Transfusion Medicine. 

From the ISBT side, this initiative is being led by Dr Allison Mo, a clinical and laboratory Haematologist from Melbourne, Australia, and we’ll welcome input from other ISBT members interested in taking part in the review process for future issues.  All references are drawn from the SRI Transfusion Evidence Library and, where relevant, Stem Cell Evidence Library.  

Look out for the first Round-Up mailing on SAFE MATERNAL AND NEWBORN CARE to mark WHO World Patient Safety Day, September 17, 2021.
