New AABB web page focuses on addressing workforce issues

March 9, 2023
AABB update.

AABB introduced a new workforce initiatives web page this week to help the blood and biotherapies field address workforce shortages and related issues. This new page, made possible thanks to the support of Abbott, highlights AABB’s educational programs and leadership development resources. The page also provides links to research and articles from partner organizations that might assist health care leaders in advocating for resources within their organizations.

The workforce web page will also house a new video series focusing on how AABB members have addressed workforce challenges at their institutions. In the series’ first installment, Don Siegel, MD, PhD, a pioneer in the biotherapies field from the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, describes the employee retention challenges facing his facility’s cellular therapies technical staff and the initiatives he implemented to significantly increase employee retention.

AABB will provide updates on the AABB Newsfeed as new resources are released on this web page.
