© 2021 Elsevier Ltd Significant resources are directed towards world-class research projects, but the findings are not necessarily translated into better healthcare outcomes, either at all or in a sustained way. There is a clear need to dedicate further resources to understanding how to promote the uptake of evidence and effectively change neonatal transfusion practice to improve outcomes. Approaching blood transfusion behaviour change more systematically, and working across disciplines and involving families, holds the potential to increase the rate of uptake of emerging evidence in clinical practice. This approach holds the potential to save costs, conserve resources, and improve clinical outcomes. Our paper focuses on the use of quality improvement to bridge the gap between evidence-based knowledge and transfusion practice in neonatal units around the world.
