Chief Executive Officer, Canadian Blood Services, Dr. Sher to Address Economic Club

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 24, 2012) - Canadian Blood Services was created in the wake of Canada's largest public health catastrophe, and the total collapse in confidence of the national blood system. Today, through its ongoing commitment to openness and transparency, it is an organization trusted by Canadians. Through its successful transformation and stewardship of the blood system, and more recently, through its leadership in the design of a national system for organ and tissue donation and transplantation in Canada, including the launch of national patient registries, Canadian Blood Services is a model for the delivery of effective, integrated and consistent patient care across Canada. At a time when collaborative solutions are being sought throughout the health system, it has shown that provincial boundaries need not be barriers to meaningful progress in improving health care delivery - innovative, integrated, pan-Canadian approaches and solutions are not only desirable, but truly possible.
