This interactive online platform reports national performance data for organ donation and transplantation in Canada. The dashboard consists of nine primary sections presenting data on key aspects of the donation and transplantation across the system. The data presented are results as of Dec. 31, 2019. This format replaces our previous annual System Progress Report publication.
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.
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.
