RSI’s Anne Wiles, is lead author for Chapter 3, entitled Assessing the Threat: Public Concern which summarizes the application of risk perception, risk communication, stakeholder engagement and risk tolerability to decisions on blood safety.  These considerations are particularly pertinent to blood safety decisions in view of the Alliance of Blood Operators (ABO) Risk-Based Decision-Making Framework (RBDM) which was developed to support decisions that optimized blood safety through the proportional allocation of resources to the most serious risks, while also ensuring that public and stakeholder concerns were adequately considered.

RSI was a major contributor to the development of the  ABO RBDM Framework.
