Announcement: Blood Management Summit - Transfuse 2012 will be held on April 19-20, 2012 at the JW Marriott in Scottsdale, Arizona.
This conference has been developed with collaboration between Mayo Clinic and Hartford Hospital, building upon the success of three previous national conferences. "Transfuse 2012" is a unique multi-disciplinary conference focused on exploring the current state-of-the-art techniques and programs to reduce allogeneic blood utilization in hospitals. This international conference will feature national and international blood management experts from China, New Zealand and Australia along with a unique iPad app launch and one-of-a-kind hands-on animal lab.
Mayo Clinic's Mark H. Ereth, M.D. introduces the conference and the iPad app in this 3-minute video:
This conference is designed for all physicians, including surgeons and anesthesiologists, perfusionists, nurses and leaders in quality and patient safety. The conference is a CME accredited activity for physicians, nurses and perfusionists.
