SABM Newsletter Welcome March 2019

2019 is upon us and we are already seeing a flurry of activity and new opportunities for SABM. The 2018 Annual Meeting represented the highest attendance of any previous meeting, a host of new members, affiliates, and global partnerships, all of which has propelled us forward into an excellent position for this year.

The success of the on-site SABM Certificate Course has led to the evolution of the on-line course now available to members and hospital affiliates. Our PBM Toolkit is soon to be released which will provide comprehensive PBM materials aligned with SABM Standards and the Quality Guide.

SABM members continue to flourish with research and publications in numerous peer-reviewed journals. Congratulations to all involved in this scholarly activity as this pushes the PBM agenda across a broad range of clinical specialties, both nationally and internationally.

We are maintaining and expanding SABM affiliations with healthcare provider educational networks such as Univadis and BloodBankGuy, with professional organizations such as NATA, and participation in national campaigns such as Choosing Wisely®. Our valued industry partners likewise continue to assist us with on-going input and support.

These efforts are featured and linked via the newsletter, our website, and social media. Please take advantage of any and all of these.

On a personal note, I would like to encourage all members, new and old, to become even more involved this year with SABM committees, newsletter content, research, and outreach. Your time and talent are what fuel this organization, keeping our mission moving and providing fresh, innovative content.

Please enjoy this latest newsletter edition. Our team looks forward to connecting with you in this exciting new year.
