The Transfusion Evidence Library is a database of systematic reviews (since 1980) and randomised controlled trials (since 1950) relevant to transfusion medicine. It is fully searchable, updated monthly and aims to be a key resource for medical practitioners, policy makers and researchers both in the UK and around the world.

The library provides

  • A fully customized user interface specifically designed for the transfusion medicine community, including search filters that make it easy to find specific information
