Graduate Certificate in Transfusion Practice

      What will I study?


      The Graduate Certificate in Transfusion Practice is a part-time, three subject online program of one year's duration administered by The University of Melbourne School of Nursing. It provides health care professionals, typically registered nurses and scientists with the professional and clinical knowledge and skills to act as a specialist resource in the area of Transfusion Practice.

      The course aims to provide a framework for participants to effectively contribute to achieving best transfusion practice and patient blood management across health services.

      The content for the three theory subjects will be delivered via:

      • Text based Distance Learning Packages via a web-enabled learning platform called SOLE
      • The practical Transfusion Specialty Practice subject is delivered through the use of a clinical practice portfolio.

      The online facilitator is available online and responds to emails, checks discussion postings and monitors progress on discussion threads. Appointments can be made for telephone discussions via email.

      The course is typically delivered over 2 semesters spanning one calendar year. However, this course can also be done part-time following discussion with the Course Coordinator.
