Quantia MD (now Univadis)

SABM continues to team up with Univadis, the largest social learning and collaboration platform for physicians to offer segments on Patient Blood Management. The most recent video, released in Fall 2017, discusses Preventing Unnecessary Blood Loss in the Hospital. This video is hosted by our own newsletter editor Dr. Carolyn Burns, Pathologist and Patient Blood Management Physician, located in Louisville, Kentucky. According to the feedback from the Univadis content services manager, this segment exceeded their benchmarks for number of views and completions. The segment had over 8,000 views and 200 comments and according to their data this talk was the most popular of the ones we’ve published so far. Hats off to Dr. Burns for a fabulous contribution! If you missed out on viewing this segment you can still view it by Click here to view Dr. Burns's PBM video. If you do not have a Univadis account it is easy to sign up for and it’s free.

SABM is working on development of the next segment with Univadis focusing on optimizing coagulation. If you have a suggestion for a future topic of interest please submit to [email protected]
