Gammon, R., Rosenbaum, L., Cooke, R., et al. (2021). Maintaining Adequate Donations and a Sustainable Blood Supply: Lessons Learned. Transfusion. 61(1):294-302.
The authors reviewed the literature to understand how blood centers prepare for disaster management and to create recommendations for blood centers and hospitals. They emphasize the need for blood centers to participate in planning for disasters and for hospitals to maintain a sufficient supply in case distribution is disrupted. They also highlight the benefits of the Association for the Advancement of Blood & Biotherapies’ Choosing Wisely initiative, including bolstering patient and provider education and helping hospitals overcome logistical challenges to ensuring a robust and optimally used blood supply.
