Also see an overview of TraQ / PBCO manuals.

Technical Resource Manual

The TRM is a collection of referenced, "best practice" guidelines covering the most commonly used procedures in a hospital transfusion service. The TRM was reviewed and revised to comply with CSA Z902-04 and CSTM Standards for Hospital Transfusion Services v. 1. The TRM has not and will not be revised, reviewed or updated to comply with any of the more recently released versions of the standards.

The TRM guidelines/SOPs are examples only and should not be used as a substitute for technical judgment. Medical and technical information becomes obsolete quickly and current sources relevant to the user's location should always be consulted.

The Technical Resource Manual, ed. 2 consists of 58 guidelines (~600 pages).

Competency Companion

The Competency Companion (~320 pages) contains competency assessment material for the guidelines contained in the Technical Resource Manual for Hospital Transfusion Services, edition 2.

Direct observation checklists and written assessment materials are provided, as well as trainer and trainee information, forms, and tips.

Most web browsers come with Acrobat Reader, which reads PDF files. If required, download Acrobat Reader (Uncheck 'optional offer' boxes if you don't want them downloaded too.)
