Tanzanian University of Health and Allied Sciences Continues its Evidence-Based Practices with Access to Influential, High Quality Transfusion Medicine Research

    A recent systematic review conducted by the Collaboration for Evidence Based Healthcare in Africa (CEBHA) on evidence-based healthcare treatment (EBHC) has shown that EBHC teaching and learning strategies on the African continent should focus on implementing multifaceted, clinically integrated approaches and assessment. Also, urgent attention should be given to the development of research capacities in low performing countries around Africa supported by an increased focus on the process of turning program research evidence into policy and practice.

    That is why Evidentia Publishing is pleased to announce that the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences (MUHAS) in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, has now full access to the Transfusion Evidence Library – an unique online database providing high quality, evidence-based information for all clinical research related to blood transfusion. In support of MUHAS’ efforts to have access to the highest quality standards and collaborative health research in Tanzania, the Transfusion Evidence database will allow them to get valuable evidence-based medical information for guiding them through the management, control and prevention of major diseases related to blood transfusion medicine the country faces.

    Dr. Tandi Lwoga, PhD, Director of the Library Services at the Muhimbili University of Health and Allied Sciences, said, “We’re very happy that with the Transfusion Evidence Library we now can research influential, evidence based health care resources. This database is really good helping us to apply valuable knowledge into our daily medical teachings and treatments around blood transfusion and blood alternatives. The data will contribute a lot to promote quality evidence based practices in our institution.”

    Mark Schregardus, CEO of Evidentia Publishing, elaborated on the latest customer addition: “High quality, relevant research is critical for Tanzania’s national development of practicing medicine. We applaud the MUHAS’ dedication to the advancement of medical knowledge and applying learning and technology extension with evidence based clinical trials and systematic reviews. Our Transfusion Evidence database will become a indispensable asset for the transfusion medicine staff and students at the institution.”
