Abstract

Healthcare includes supportive services like blood transfusion. To manage blood supply and transfusion services, leadership development is paramount. E-learning has become a common global approach in teaching. However, there are limitations. Some are difficult to influence and eliminate. E-learning packages are promoted to effectively deliver education but are still not penetrated in clinical transfusion. Most clinicians have little knowledge of risks and benefits of hemotherapy. E-learning found its way into the field of blood transfusion. However, audits of clinical transfusion practice have demonstrated deficiencies in knowledge and practice that impact patient safety and in some cases result in death. WHO initiated a post-academic master course, “Management of Transfusion Medicine,” focused on leadership in restricted economy countries. This chapter focuses on bridging the knowledge gap in management and operations of transfusion medicine.
