In summary, the technical, scientific and medical aspects of transfusion me- dicine continue to be critical. We all must find ways to provide a safer unit of blood and blood components. However, there must be a realization by all in- volved in the profession that the management and administration aspects of transfusion medicine deserve equal attention, respect and support. Why? It is very simple! Without all aspectsoftransfusion medicine working togetherfor the common good - care ofthe patient - we will all fail. References 1.
