The aim of this webinar is to discuss the importance of blood product transfusions and infusions during the care of leukaemia patients.
The webinar will explain what blood products are, how, when and why they are used, how blood products are sourced, prepared and administered.
We will explore the different methods of administration, inclusion criteria and routes to access. During the webinar the expert panel will discuss their experience of using blood products, their limitations, the demands on the care team, and on patients. How do blood products impact on a patient's survival and quality of life?
