This new online learning Nurse Certificate (NCert), Veterinary Technician (VTCert) and Veterinary Paraprofessional (VPPCert)  Programme in Transfusion Medicine, accredited by the International School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ISVPS), aims to help veterinary professionals improve their knowledge in all aspects of transfusion medicine, from understanding when a transfusion is required to the different techniques for safe blood collection and administration.

How can you become proficient in veterinary transfusion medicine?

This programme will guide you through 8 online modules, each module is built around six lessons, two reflective studies, different course notes and weekly summary videos. The interactive approach of each session will help you retain new knowledge more effectively, with regular assessments testing your skills as you progress. As with all our high-quality online programmes, this course also benefits from the latest technology and from the guidance of renowned veterinary professionals.

Topics will range between several key subjects within transfusion medicine, such as blood banking, product management, conditions such as anaemia and adverse transfusion reactions, among others. The fundamental principles of blood types will be covered, and discussion will be held around how and when to use compatibility testing to maximise transfusion efficacy. The course will provide a good understanding of the aims and risks of transfusions.
