Continuing Education

SABM is the recognized leader and key educational resource for patient blood management (PBM). In support of SABM’s mission to improve health, increase safety and reduce healthcare costs through the advancement of scientific knowledge and practice, we continue to promote education and training to achieve change through a multidisciplinary approach to PBM. One of the most popular educational opportunities has been our comprehensive PBM Certificate Course. Since the course launch in 2015, we continue to receive great feedback and interest in this educational offering. As promised to our members, we are very excited to announce that the online version of the course is now available; “Go Live” was February 22!

Online Certificate Course

This immersion course provides participants with the knowledge and tools needed for those working in the field. This course was created by recognized clinical experts in PBM. Whether a physician, nurse, perfusionist, advocate or administrator, this course offers administrative guidance, PBM program principles, clinical concepts and best practice applications. We encourage you to share this exciting offering with your colleagues! For registration and course details click here. We are also pleased to announce that the Certificate Course will be offered live at the upcoming SABM Annual Meeting in Baltimore, Maryland. Click here to learn about the SABM 2019 Annual Meeting.

Stay tuned for the much anticipated SABM PBM Tool kit. We are looking forward to a Spring 2019 release.


Art Bracey

In case you missed it from our last newsletter, Dr. Art Bracey presented a very informative segment on Optimizing Coagulation: Periprocedural Management hosted by our friends at Univadis. The feedback from the participants was very positive. The segment had 2068 views! Many thanks to Dr. Bracey and to Univadis for providing the platform to SABM to share our knowledge with other medical professionals. We continue to work with Univadis to develop future PBM topics of interests. If you have a topic you would like to suggest for SABM to submit for consideration, please let us know by emailing to [email protected].

Look forward to upcoming 2019 podcasts with Dr. Joe Chaffin, BloodBankGuy". We continue to collaborate with Dr. Chaffin to provide PBM podcasts hosted on the BloodBankGuy. We are very excited to share that Dr. Chaffin is working with SABM’s president, Dr. Peter Tibi for a podcast on PBM in Cardiovascular Surgery and with Dr. Carolyn Burns for a discussion of SABM’s Choosing Wisely® campaign.
