Focus on proper patient identification and product tracking, rapid dispensing, minimizing wastage and managing a limited inventory will be addressed. The importance of having cross disciplinary teams and including both the blood provider and transfusion service in department wide simulations will be addressed. National resources for simulation planning will be shared.
