DOMAINE Donor Management Manual
From 2008 to 2011, the DOMAINE (DOnor MAnagement IN Europe) project worked on improving donor management practices throughout Europe. The aim of this EU-funded project was to create a safe and sufficient blood supply, by comparing and recommending good donor management practice.
One of the main project outcomes is the Donor Management Manual. It is aimed at donor managers and policy makers in the realm of blood donor management. The manual provides information on the following practical issues in donor management:
- Architecture and infrastructure
- Donor base
- Donor recruitment
- Donor retention
- Multiple-transfused patients
- Special situations
- Human Resources Management
- Information technology
- Ethical considerations
The Donor Management Manual is available in five languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, French and Dutch and can be downloaded below.
