Perioperative Blood Management

Perioperative Blood Management

The Perioperative Blood Management (PBM) program, an on-line educational opportunity offered by Clinical Perfusion Education at the University of Nebraska Medical Center, is open to anyone practicing perioperative blood management at any level. We utilize asynchronous tools to bring flexibility for your busy lifestyle and schedule. This is the perfect delivery of necessary training for those practicing autotransfusion and/or seeking certification in blood management at your institution!

Each session consists of six 8-hour days that include a comfortable mix asynchronous classroom activities to be enjoyed from the comforts of the location of your choice. Sessions begin on a Tuesday and are refreshed each day through the completion on Sunday. The sessions may be completed without even taking a day off work; however, please recognize that each scheduled day is a full eight hour experience.

Our program includes an online pre- and post-test, the results of which are known only to you. The course is conducted via our interactive web-interface educational platform. The ABCP has awarded 56.1 SDCEs for the December 2013 course. You can view the ABCPs guidelines to using CEUs on their website. 25 SDCEs may be reported on the Professional Activity Report: 10 as Category 1 and 15 as Category III Self-Learning Activities.

You may review the FAQ's for our UNMC CEU courses which address fundamental and technical questions. All of our offerings are constructed in a similar format.

The registration fee for all six days and integrated on-line testing access is $670, plus an additional $250 for those requesting CEUs. Any fees associated with your computer access or long distance telephone service are not included and are the participant's responsibility. A serialized embossed certificate is awarded for participation. A $100 late fee will be assessed if the registration fee is received past the deadline date and CEUs are requested.
