Abstract

The principle perspective in supportive hemotherapy should lie in ongoing efforts to minimize sofar unavoidable risks together with sincere endeavours to optimize clinical efficacy as a fundamental goal in patient care. The continuing process of recognition of both risks and benefits of hemotherapy encourages a better understanding of the role of the Blood Bank in clinical transfusion practice. Blood transfusion as a clinical discipline is well on its way to be fully respected. The profession develops the understanding and respect grows, its position in the clinical team becomes more circumscript, evident and accepted.
