In 2012 the Patient Blood Management (PBM) guidelines were published by the National Blood Authority1, providing a standard of practice for clinicians across Australia. The ACSQHC standards were recently updated in 20172 and the adoption of the PBM guidelines will now be nationally mandated for hospitals in 2019.In this article, we answer three questions:
1. Why were the PBM guidelines developed?
2. What do the PBM guidelines recommend?
3. How can we implement the PBM guidelines successfully?
