NHS Blood and Transplant, working as part of the Midlands-Wales Advanced Therapy Treatment Centre, have launched a new e-learning module on Safe use of low temperature transport vessels. The module introduces nitrogen vapour phase dry shippers and dry ice shipments, explains the hazards of using these low temperature transport vessels and describes how they can be used and stored safely.

This module is the first of a new e-learning programme on ‘Advanced Therapies’, available to all NHS and UK university staff via the e-Learning for Healthcare Hub. Check back on this programme as additional learning resources will be being added.

For new users who need to register for access to the e-LfH hub, instructions are available on the e-LfH support page.
