Course Information

Blood Transfusion: Prenatal Care

Blood Transfusion: Prenatal Care

Prenatal medical care occurs throughout the course of all pregnancies. This includes prenatal screening directly related to transfusion medicine. Something as simple as the mother's ABO blood group can have an effect on possible complications with the pregnancy. Prenatal screening is a tool to prevent and manage these complications.

Although prenatal care associated with transfusion medicine is familiar to obstetric and gynecologic physicians, primary care providers (PCPs) may not be as familiar. In Newfoundland and Labrador, it is common in rural settings that PCPs provide the main prenatal care. This module will provide some extra guidance to PCPs in these settings.

MDcme (on behalf of its consortium partners) protects the privacy of personal and other information regarding course registrants. MDcme will not release personally identifiable information to a third party without an individual's consent, except such information as is required for reporting purposes to the body or bodies accrediting this course for continuing education study credits. MDcme collects and reviews all course data (registration/course completion statistics, pre/post-test and satisfaction survey) to determine if a course meets participants' learning needs. Data is reviewed to improve existing courses and to inform the development of future course offerings. If an evaluation report is provided to a third party, all data is summarized, with no participant identifying information included. Given the importance and potential impact of some courses, evaluation data may be presented and/or published in academic venues. Again, this data is always summarized, with no identifying information included.

At times, a contributing/partner organization involved in a course may request individual participant data from pre/post or evaluation surveys for quality improvement or educational research purposes. This data would be de-identified so would not be associated with any personally identifiable information such as your name, profession, city, etc.

If requested by a contributing/partner organization:

Do you consent to the release of your individual, de-identified pre/post or evaluation survey data for the purposes of quality improvement or educational research?
