Development of the Risk-Based Decision-Making Framework for Blood Safety

The Risk-Based Decision-Making Framework for Blood Safety was created under the auspices of the ABO. It grew out of a series of activities that began with the International Consensus Conference on Risk-Based Decision-Making for Blood Safety in Toronto in 2010.

The consensus statement that emerged from these discussions acknowledged that:

The outcomes of the conference have been published in Transfusion Medicine Review and Vox Sanguinis.
