To assess the effect of introducing consensus guidelines on avoidable blood transfusions in Mwanza region, Tanzania.
Avoidable blood transfusions were determined among 842 blood transfusion recipients in eight hospitals in 1991.
In a workshop with senior health workers from the region, consensus guidelines for the prescription of blood transfusions were developed and introduced in the hospitals and after 7 months intervention data were collected on 1042 blood transfusion recipients.
The 1991 and 1992 data were compared to estimate the change in the proportion of avoidable blood transfusions.
