Emergency hospital admission critical bleeding and massive transfusion

Description The Australian and New Zealand Massive Transfusion Registry (ANZ-MTR) is managed by the Transfusion Research Unit at Monash University. The registry collects comprehensive clinical and laboratory data on patients who have had a massive transfusion (MT) due to any type of critical bleeding during their hospital admission. This project(s) will focus on MT required for emergency admission patients with haemorrhagic bleeding, such as caused by trauma injury, gastrointestinal or obstetric haemorrhage. There are several potential study plans that can be refined to suit the student's interests and time-frames. Analyses could be focussed on descriptive analyses of patient cohorts, patient blood management, transfusion management, linkages with other clinical registries/databases (e.g. trauma registries).... The student will develop skills and knowledge in compiling and analysing large and complex clinical datasets, statistical analyses methods, together with developing a deeper understanding about clinical and transfusion practice in the setting of critical bleeding and massive transfusion.
