The Blood Matters Program is a Victorian State Government program run in collaboration with the Australian Red Cross Blood Service that aims to improve the quality and safety of hospital transfusion care for patients.

It focuses on: 

  • quality improvement practices for health services via audits, reporting systems and research
  • implementing and supporting transfusion nurse/trainer roles in Victorian health service
  • engaging with the health sector through the Blood Matters Advisory Committee. 

Blood Matters workshops

Blood Matters also holds workshops for health services. 

The workshops follow the blood journey from donation to safe transfusion practice. 

If you are interested in holding a workshop at your health service please contact the Blood Matters Program.
