Building on Monash University’s Massive Transfusion Registry (MTR), this project will establish a new national transfusion data asset which will incorporate data from several national clinical datasets and improve blood utilisation and patient management and outcomes.
The National Transfusion data asset will describe numbers and characteristics of patients transfused prehospital (for example, by ambulance/retrieval services), in hospital, or in the community, or reasons for and outcomes of transfusion. This data asset will include data on all (not just massive) transfusions.
Who is this project for?
- Government agencies
- Research organisations
- Healthcare agencies
What does this project enable?
This project will enable streamlined access to a comprehensive national dataset of transfusion practice and create new research opportunities to inform national transfusion policy and practice, improve blood utilisation and patient management and outcomes.
