Background and purpose: Every stage in preparation of blood and blood components, storage, transportation, and transfusion involves a specific process which should be continuously supervised. The aim of this study was to compare the knowledge of resident physicians, interns and nurses about transfusion medicine in 2013. Materials and methods: In a descriptive cross-sectional study, 147 individuals were randomly selected from resident physicians, interns and nurses in Imam Khomeini, Boali sina, Zare and Fatemehzahra hospitals in Sari. A questionnaire containing twenty questions was used to assess their knowledge and practice about transfusion medicine. Their scores were classified into three levels (poor, average, and good). Results: The highest score for knowledge was achieved by residents (mean score: 6.2) while nurses had the highest score for practice (mean score: 38.2) which was significantly higher than other groups (P=0.00). Conclusion: This study showed that nurses and medical students including residents and interns require more training about blood transfusion medicine.
