Use of blood products for the care of leukaemia patients

The webinar will give you an overview of what blood products are, how, when and why they are used, how blood products are sourced, prepared and administered.

The aim of this webinar is to discuss the importance of blood product transfusions and infusions during the care of leukaemia patients.
