International haemovigilance: what have we learned and what do we need to do next?
Past-president of the IHN, Erica Wood, has successfully concluded her term as chair of the IHN. Prior to stepping down, she published as lead author along with current and past IHN board members a thorough overview of the current state of hemovigilance. In this interesting review, not only the added value of hemovigilance surveillance for blood safety is highlighted, the authors also point out necessary efforts to support progress in this field in the future.
