Online specialization and knowledge updating training aimed at nursing professionals in the field of blood transfusion and cell and tissue therapy.

Nursing has a basic place in the entire process, from donation to administration and care of patients who have received a biological product of human origin. The personnel directly involved in the extraction, study, treatment, conservation and distribution of human blood and its blood components must be qualified to carry out said tasks and receive appropriate and regularly updated training.

This postgraduate course, unique in Catalonia, aims to fill the gap in nursing curricula in Catalonia, where the teaching of Hemotherapy is not contemplated, which is included as an elective in some Spanish universities.

This reality was corroborated by the responses of 117 nursing professionals active in the field of transfusion medicine in hospitals in Catalonia and Latin America to a survey conducted in 2021. The professionals showed a high interest, almost 90%, in update their knowledge in transfusion medicine and cell and tissue therapies, and more than 51% indicated their intention to enroll if a degree of these characteristics were given.

    Curricular practices are those which are included in the curriculum of the studies and, therefore, must be overcome to obtain the degree. The programme manager will explain you the details of how, where and under what conditions you should do the internship.
  • Non-curricular
