Recommendations have been developed through the consensus of the Transfusion Medicine Advisory Group (TMAG), which consists of transfusion medicine physicians, technologists and nurses from hospitals across BC. The BC Provincial Blood Coordinating Office, Technical Resource Group and Nursing Resource Group have provided invaluable support for these initiatives. Recognizing the evolution of formalized processes for the development of "guidelines," the latter term was replaced by the term "recommendations" in 2014. Historical document titles are unchanged.
