Publisher's description - Informed Consent Reference 1.0.0
Quick reference app that provides an easy-access guide to physicians obtaining informed consent for blood transfusion. Informed consent for transfusion is a requirement of blood and safety standards in Canada. Evidence suggests it is often not performed correctly (or at all). This accessibility and structure of the app makes it easier for physicians to comply with standards.
The Informed Consent Reference also benefits patients, by giving them an opportunity to discuss their possible transfusion with their healthcare provider and gain a better understanding of the benefits and risks of this therapy.
