If your Group or Facility has Perfusionists, Autotransfusionists, or other Perioperative Blood Management Personnel that are in need of continuing education, the ABTC Short Course maybe the answer to your needs.

The "Mobile" ABTC Short Course allows attendees to achieve "same time/same page educational training" and often eases clinical scheduling issues. On-Site Continuing Education is usually more cost efficient than traditional educational meetings.

The ABTC was initially created in July, 1999, as an effort to share the experience/expertise of PRFUZN, Inc. with other individuals that have an interest in this new and evolving technology.

The purpose of the Course is to impart knowledge acquired by PRFUZN, Inc. as an aid to the development of the technology. It is important to understand that the technical information presented during the Course may not be the only way of conducting the technology, but the information is presented as "what works for us." However, it is our intent that with the knowledge acquired during the ABTC, each attendee does not have to re-invent the wheel in order to develop a successful clinical practice.

Our Goal
The attendance goal of the ABTC is a limited group of registrants. It is our experience that a small class offers the attendees an enhanced learning experience along with an opportunity to become an active participant in the Class.

The teaching goal of the ABTC is that regardless of what level of knowledge the attendee has upon their arrival, that knowledge base will increase significantly before their departure. Additionally, we believe that exposure to true Southern Hospitality will also be an aid to their learning experience.

The Course

The Autologous Blood Therapy Course is a basic seminar developed for the individual that wishes to expand their knowledge of the new and exciting technology: PRP (platelet-rich-plasma)/ Platelet Concentrate, point-of-care stem cell processing, and autotransfusion.

The Course content is comprised of: Basic science; Growth Factors; Wound Healing; Regulatory Guidelines; Policy, Process, and Procedures; Large/Small/Variable Systems; Business Practice Development; Stem Cells; Sequestration Techniques; Applications Techniques; Mini Case Reports; Reimbursements; and Practical (wet lab) Experience.

The Course requires completion of an on-site educational offering, at "the location of choice", which requires 1 1/2 days (14 clock hours). Additionally, there is a post Class self study assignment utilizing on-line publications. CEU's are awarded (previous courses: 18 Category I + 7 Category III = 25 CEU's), in addition to a certificate of completion.

The design of the Course requires tuition of five hundred dollars ($500.00). Included are: On-Site Class, Course Notebook, and Post Class Self Study Assignment.

The Autologous Blood Therapy Course is offered, as required, at locations across the United States, as well as in Jackson, Mississippi.
