The Blood Transfusion Training (BTT) elearning programme supports the training of staff directly involved in the transfusion process and/or the management of patients requiring anti-D immunoglobulin prophylaxis.
Safe and appropriate transfusion saves and improves lives, but it is not without risk. The Blood Transfusion Training elearning programme’s modules guide clinical and laboratory healthcare staff involved in the transfusion process (in adults, neonates, infants, and children), through each step of the transfusion process.
Available to healthcare professionals around the world, the engaging, online sessions provide best practice guidance on optimising the care of patients who may need a transfusion.
The programme is made up of nine modules. Each module takes between 30 & 60 minutes to complete and includes an assessment – a score of 80% is required to successfully complete the module.
The programme modules cover the following topics:
- Essential Transfusion Practice (adult and paediatric practice)
- Good Manufacturing Practice
- SHOT (Serious Hazards of Transfusion)
- Transfusion Reactions
- Blood Components
- Cell Salvage
- An Introduction to Transfusion Laboratory Practice
- Use of Anti-D Immunoglobulin in Pregnancy
eIntegrity programmes are developed by NHS Health Education England’s e-Learning for Healthcare programme (HEE e-LfH).
The programmes are high quality self-directed learning programmes. They are designed to support training and CPD and are excellent resources alongside other traditional teaching methodologies. They have been developed by the UK NHS for use in the NHS. However, many of the programmes have international relevance, particularly the specialty training programmes which are often mapped to UK specialty training curricula.
