Workshop goals

Workshop Goals

  • Discuss donor hemoglobin standards and measurement and to determine how any change in hemoglobin standards may affect donor safety and the blood supply.

  • Review data on the impact of donation on iron stores, and techniques to assess iron stores in donors.

  • Assess measures to mitigate donor iron loss, such as iron supplementation or change in the interdonation interval. Evaluate how any such change may affect the blood supply.


Topics to be addressed

Topics to be Addressed

  • Hemoglobin standards for blood donors

  • Measurement of hemoglobin and iron in blood donors

  • Iron stores and iron deficiency in blood donors

  • Iron supplementation strategies for blood donors

  • Impact of any change in hemoglobin standards or interdonation interval on the blood supply and on blood establishment operations.
