Preoperative Anaemia Identification, Assessment and Management Case Study

The preoperative anaemia identification, assessment and management case study is intended to inform healthcare practitioners, health educators, health service managers and policy makers about preoperative anaemia screening. This resource provides a wealth of ideas and links to help hospitals use clinical practice improvement methods to implement an anaemia screening clinic based on evidence-based recommendations in the Patient Blood Management Guidelines: Module 2 – Perioperative.
