Recognition and Management of Acute Transfusion Reactions Chart

The Recognition and Management of Acute Transfusion Reactions Chart is a resource for health professionals.

We invite interested individuals, groups and organisations to comment on the Chart and encourage you to advise your colleagues of its availability for public comment.
