Effective February 2023 the Clinical Transfusion Resource Manual (CTRM) has been retired. The PBCO Nursing Resource Group is currently developing a new document to act as a resource and guide for those new to the transfusion practitioner role in BC. As a bridge until the new document is available consider the use of the following documents/resources:

Canadian Standards and Regulations relevant to Transfusion Medicine:

  • -The Canadian Standards Association CSA-Z902:20 Blood and Blood Components Standard
  • -The Canadian Society of Transfusion Medicine (CSTM) Standards for Hospital Transfusion Services document (Version 5)
  • -The College of Physicians and Surgeons of BC (CPSBC) DAP Laboratory Medicine Accreditation Standards (Version 1.7)
