Brazilian researchers visit RNSH

A group of researchers from Brazil has recently visited Royal North Shore Hospital (RNSH) to gain more knowledge in relation to blood management processes at the hospital.

The joint initiative between RNSH, NSW Heath Pathology Transfusion Services and the Centre for Healthcare Resilience and Implementation Science, the Australian Institute of Health Innovation Faculty of Medicine and Macquarie University, gave the researchers the opportunity to explore the hospital and engage with clinicians.

The researchers Professor Flavio S. Fogliatto, Professor Tarcisio Saurin, Leonardo Furstenau, Guilherme Tortorella and Natália Ransolin, were accompanied by Macquarie University’s Associate Professor Robyn Clay-Williams and RNSH Blood Management Clinical Nurse Consultant Phillippa Weaver and Bruno Villamea Santos, Virtual Care Change Officer NSLHD.

The group is currently taking part in research related to ‘Digitising Blood Management Processes in Brazil’ and are also researching other health processes.

The group visited different departments of RNSH including the haematology department, cardiothoracic intensive care unit, NSW Health Pathology transfusion laboratory and the immunology department.

Phillippa said the experience with the researchers benefited everyone involved.

The researchers gained knowledge from RNSH clinicians and scientists, and we gained knowledge from them

“Several clinicians from RNSH will stay in touch with them, especially in relation to safety and quality and system processes.”
