PBM is an interdisciplinary cross-sectoral, multi-modal and, in particular, patient-oriented bundle concept aimed at the appropriate reduction of transfusion rates in large surgeries and oncological diseases and aimed to the reduction of transfusion-associated complications and costs both in short-term and long-term perspectives.
