Le tableau de bord national sur l’impact de la COVID-19 sur le don et la transplantation d’organes vise à aider le milieu à mieux comprendre, presque en temps réel, les répercussions directes ou indirectes de la COVID-19 sur les pratiques de don et de transplantation d’organes au Canada. Par extension, il renseigne sur les conséquences de ces changements sur les donneurs potentiels et les candidats à la transplantation.
Health care professionals in donation and transplantation are invited to attend a series of webinars focusing on psychological first aid, grief and loss, and moral distress, within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
