About us

Nurse with patient

Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center has made important strides in promoting blood conservation resulting in a reduction in overall blood utilization in the institution and improved patient outcomes. The Practicing Excellence in Transfusion Therapy project staff is committed to education and research exploring methods to conserve the patient’s own native red blood cells, boost production and decrease bleeding so that more of the rare and precious banked blood can be available for those patients who can truly benefit and to meet the needs of those patients who refuse the administration of blood products.
