The Plasma Proteins Therapeutics Association (PPTA) and ESNO collaborated to develop a “Competence Profile for Nurses” in plasma donation centers aiming to expand their responsibilities in these collection centers and become the recognized qualified “health professionals” in the European context and overcome the current legal uncertainty with regard to the interpretation of article 19 of the current EU Blood, Tissues, and Cells (BTC) Directive 2002/98 into national legislation.
Regarding the revision of the EU BTC legislation, this event, hosted by MEP Knotek, is an opportunity to discuss how nurses’ responsibilities could be expanded in the plasma collection centers and be recognized as adequately trained to perform tasks related to donor screening and care.
