Serological Case Studies: Unexpected/Odd Outcomes
August 01, 2012, 1:00 p.m.
Event Description: The age-old adage of, "there's more than meets the eye!" applies as much to the immunohematologist as to anyone else. In a case study approach, this session will cover immunohematology investigations where the initial RBC antibody identification or clinical scenario was vastly different from the final conclusion at the end of the investigation. The cases presented here will prove that, in immunohematology, it is a benefit to keep an open mind until the very end of an investigation, since there may be a surprising or odd outcome at the end!
Changing to a No-Blame Culture
August 22, 2012, 1:00 p.m.
