- Brief summaryPatients usually receive blood transfusions in the hospital. There is evidence that blood transfusions can also be given safely at home. It is however yet unknown whether blood transfusions at home are cost effective and improve patients health status. Research so far only addressed safety and legal issues; effects and costs have not been studied.In this project we look at costs from a societal perspective and effects on quality of life. We also look at barriers and facilitators for implementing blood transfusions at home.
