The Society is excited to announce that we have been awarded a $352,000 grant from The Department of Health and Aged Care Quality Use of Pathology Program (QUPP). This is a national grants program that aims to improve health and economic outcomes through best practice use of pathology testing.
Success in being awarded this QUPP grant represents a significant achievement for our Society. This is also an important milestone for us with acknowledgement by the Australian Government of the Society’s key role as advocates for safe, appropriate and effective transfusion practice.
Our project is titled Quality use of non-invasive prenatal RhD testing with the outcome of achieving a standardised and optimised clinical RhD testing pathway applicable and available nationally, to meet the needs of general practitioners, obstetricians, midwives, pathologists and pregnant women. The underlying aim is to support the effective implementation of Medicare-funded RHD non-invasive prenatal testing and ensure RhD immunoglobulin prophylaxis is appropriate and in accordance with the new National Blood Authority (NBA) guidelines.
The project will be managed by a Steering Committee supported by a Project Manager and Project Officer.
