The Canadian Clinical Guide to Organ Donation is an organ donation curriculum for health professionals that enhances competencies in the identification and care of potential deceased donors and their families. The Canadian Clinical Guide to Organ Donation is a free self-directed, interactive, online e-learning course featuring case scenarios.
Developed by Canadian Blood Services, the Canadian Transplant Registry (CTR) is the technology that will operationalize the IPOS Heart policies. The CTR is an easily accessible online website for Organ Donation Organizations, laboratories, and transplant hospitals to manage patients, donors, organ offers and transplant outcomes. The CTR will apply a standardized matching and ranking algorithm to optimize transplant success factors for those hard to match and/or medically urgent heart patients.
Building upon the success of the interprovincial sharing of kidneys for highly sensitized patients, and guided by Canada's heart transplantation community, Canadian Blood Services is now developing the technology that supports the approved national Heart sharing policies that will streamline and propel heart allocation and transplantation in Canada in to the future.
The Canadian Transplant Registry (CTR) identifies transplant opportunities across Canada for heart transplant candidates who are highly sensitized to Human Lymphocyte Antigens (HLA) and/or designated as medically urgent (i.e., designated as medical status 4).
This policy describes the eligibility requirements for potential transplant recipients to participate in the Inter-provincial Sharing: Heart program. View the policy here.
A national organ donation and transplantation COVID-19 impact dashboard was developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It is intended to help the community better understand, in near real time, the impact the COVID-19 crisis has had, either directly or indirectly on organ donation and transplantation in Canada and by extension, what impact these changes have had on potential donors and transplant candidates.
