Marianne de Bretan-Berg – Perioperative Blood Conservation Coodinator
This spring I had the opportunity to interview Marianne de Bretan-Berg, a Perioperative Blood Conservation Coordinator at Southlake Regional Health Centre. Nurses are most often the provider that administers blood product, and discusses the physiological need for with the prescriber. This makes having up to date knowledge about blood transfusions critical. In this interview Marianne talk about the paradigm change in healthcare about blood products and how her roll allows her to improve the quality of care to patients at her organization and reduce unnecessary use of blood products, which prevents risk and adverse events and outcomes.
