Decisions about blood safety are made in the context of emerging risks, evolving technology, societal issues, and economic realities.
These decisions are aimed at managing the risks of blood donation, blood transfusion, and beyond.
This Risk-Based Decision-Making Framework for Blood Safety can:
- Help you identify, assess, act on, and communicate risk in a manner suited to each situation;
- Help organise and simplify the decision-making process by breaking it down into a series of logical and manageable steps;
- Offer the flexibility to adapt it to your own regulatory structures, local conditions, and needs.
The Risk-Based Decision-Making Framework for Blood Safety is intended to be embedded in an organization’s risk management program. As such, it has two distinct components: Policy Foundations and the Decision-Making Process.
We invite you to review the Framework and consider using it for your decision-making.
