What is blood transfusion?

Blood transfusion is generally the process of receiving blood or blood products into one’s circulation intravenously. Transfusions are used for various medical conditions to replace lost components of the blood.

Why is blood transfusion training important?

Using blood and blood components is a common therapeutic procedure in NHS and private hospitals. Blood transfusion, if used safely and appropriately, will improve the quality of life or be a life saving treatment for many patients. Doctors and nurses in particular have an important role in a safe blood transfusion. Therefore, it is crucial for nurses to have sufficient knowledge of situations, amount and methods of using blood components, possible side effects and necessary cares.

What is the Skills for Health’ UK ‘Core Skills Training Framework’ (CSTF)?

There is increasing recognition that there are wide variations in the quality and consistency of healthcare training provided across the UK. To minimise these challenges, LearnPac Systems works with various UK health and social care organisations to develop statutory and mandatory training courses in line with Skills for Health’s UK Core Skills Training Framework (CSTF).
