The START Initiative
The NITC START (Supporting Trust Audit Related to Transfusion) Initiative commenced in October 2014.
It aims to assist individuals and groups within Northern Ireland Trusts to carry out Transfusion related audits using best methodology gained from the experience of the NITC audit programme over the last 10 years.
Projects assisted in 2014/15 include
Anaemia in endoscopy
Single unit transfusions
Identifying possible reduction in medical transfusion
Appropriateness of two unit transfusions
Donor exposure in neonates
The NITC is now taking applications for 2016 - if you have a transfusion based idea and would like some assistance on how to best proceed - contact us.
