TraQ offers several unique manuals developed by the BC PBCO and transfusion technical specialists and managers throughout BC, as well as a selection of hospital Customer Service and Technical Manuals available worldwide.
1. The Technical Resource Manual (TRM) and Competency Companion (CC) were last revised in 2004. They have not and will not be revised to comply with more recent versions of relevant standards.
2. The Laboratory Quality Manual (LQM) and Technical Operations Manual (TOM) were developed beginning in 2005. Unlike earlier manuals, TOM procedures are written as work instructions that begin immediately and require a significant cultural change to be implemented successfully. Procedures are available mainly as versions "0" and draft, which facilities can adapt to their needs and update as required.
TraQ also offers a small, arbitrary selection of transfusion-related customer service and technical manuals available online. The PBCO has no control over external resources that are linked to TraQ.
