The deceased donation program focuses on evolving the quality and safety of national organ donation services in Canada, which will result in continued improvement for access to lifesaving organs and transplants for all Canadians.
This chapter focuses on the principles of safe blood transfusion practices. The aim of this chapter is to develop and support the knowledge of health-care professionals involved in prescribing and administering blood components and products.
Canadian Blood Services works collaboratively with the Canadian tissue community to develop and implement leading practices to improve the quality and safety of tissue produced in Canadian tissue banks. This work includes leading practice workshops, public awareness and education campaigns, national data collection, publication of Canadian eye and tissue banking activity and the design and implementation of recommendations and systematic reviews for five areas of practice for tissue bioburden reduction and control.
National OTDT Data Working Groups have been created to establish standardized data sets that will allow alignment of information collected and reported across the country. These reports represent the first step in building a comprehensive national data set for organ and tissue donation and transplantation.
The monthly OTDT digest has been developed to share highlights from our collaborative work with the organ and tissue donation and transplantation community.
