Working smarter to minimise blood and blood product wastage

The National Blood Product Management Improvement Strategy has 2 goals:

  • to reduce blood and blood-related product wastage
  • to ensure blood and blood-related products are available to meet clinical needs.

To achieve these goals, the strategy focuses on 3 streams of work:

  • making blood-related product manufacturing and distribution more efficient
  • improving inventory management in Australian Health Providers (AHPs)
  • helping health providers to use blood and blood-related products appropriately and reduce wastage.
