Mentoring.» Our partner is the Blood Center, with which we plan to enter into a cooperation agreement in the near future. During the event, our teachers, students and staff demonstrated the importance and significance of this event. In my opinion, personal example is more important than ever here and everyone has become a mentor for the younger generation. In addition, the action provides an opportunity to show one’s humanity, concern, awareness and civic position., – the press service of the university quotes the director of the department for social and educational work of KFU. V.I. Vernadsky Elena Kravchenko.
Donor activities are aimed at replenishing blood supplies in accordance with the needs of the regional institutions of the Blood Center.
We also talked with students about a separate type of donation – taking cells, namely platelets. The topic is relevant because the number of people in need of transfusion of this particular component has increased. Despite the fact that the coronavirus is not at its peak, an increase in incidence is still observed. Clinicians have noticed a peculiarity that the COVID-19 virus affects platelet levels: blood cells in moderate and severe patients decrease sharply. These patients just need a transfusion of individual blood cells from a donor. The same procedure is necessary for patients with leukemia and patients receiving chemotherapy, as well as people with any cancer.,” said Olga Chos, head of the donor recruitment department of the State Budgetary Healthcare Institution of the Republic of Crimea “Blood Center” of the Republic of Crimea.
According to her, the collection of the component is carried out specifically for a specific patient, and a preparation of the required group and rhesus is sent to him.
All-Russian campaign “Donor code. Mentoring» is held within the framework of the Year of the Teacher and Mentor.
