The American Red Cross and the American Society for Clinical Pahtology (ASCP) are teaming up to provide a 4-part series of audioconferences on antibody identification in transfusion medicine starting in March.

Participants in “ASCP Lunchtime Case Studies with American Red Cross” will earn 2.0 CME/CMLE credits for the four 30-minute sessions. There is a $400 registration fee per site, but there is no limit to the number of participants that can receive credit per site.

This series hopes to enable participants to recognize initial test parameters of specific categories of antibody identification problems, state the next steps to resolve red cell antibody identification steps, and identify resources available for complex case resolution.
