It is with great pleasure that we are making the following information package on human tissue donation available to hospitals and health professionals.
The purpose of this information package is to enable each hospital and nursing team member to identify and recommend potential tissue donors to Héma-Québec. The information also serves as a reference document that can be accessible any time in your workplace.
The package contains the following:
- “Procedure to recommend a potential donor” poster, a video explaining the procedure and a video entitled “Le don de tissus en pédiatrie” (in French only);
- Three information sheets:
- “Human Tissue Donation” poster;
- “A Legacy of Life” guide for families and loved ones;
- 13 video testimonials.
Free one-hour accredited training:
Héma-Québec is accredited by the SOFEDUC and offers one hour of continuous training to each professional who completes reading and viewing of all the elements contained in the package. To validate this training, the learner must fill this online evaluation (in French only). A certificate will be sent to the learner’s email address in the weeks following the training.
Héma-Québec recognizes the invaluable contribution of nursing staff to the success of each tissue donation. Thank you in advance for investing time in this training and implementing this gift of life in your professional practice. Patients that are waiting for a human tissue transplant depend on the generosity of donors and their families to regain their health and life. For their part, families that are coping with the loss of a loved one find comfort in the act of tissue donation, knowing that a part of their loved one lives on in someone else. Ultimately, it is a health professional that makes all the difference by providing the link between a potential donor and Héma-Québec.
