Founded in 2001, the Society for the Advancement of Blood Management (SABM) was started by a group of dedicated volunteers who saw a need for a new way of thinking. The SABM founders realized that blood management ought to be the standard of care, and that blood transfusion should be viewed as the alternative. Today, SABM is recognized as a key educational resource for patient blood management. SABM is grounded in scientific validation, evidence-based practices and focused on promoting the patients’ best interest through effective and optimal blood management.
SABM defines its mission as the improvement of health outcomes by advancing comprehensive patient blood management practices, promoting innovative research, and providing quality professional and public education.
Given our mission and message, SABM is truly honored and proud to partner with the Choosing Wisely® campaign.
