We’re excited to launch a brand-new look for the Professional Education website, Canadian Blood Services’ resource hub for health-care professionals working in transfusion medicine or as part of the organ and tissue donation and transplantation community.
The new design makes it easier to find and use valuable resources, whether it’s a clinical guideline, best practice, publication or information about upcoming events. Although the website may have a new look, all content—developed in collaboration with leading experts in their fields—remains unchanged from the website’s previous version.
Check out the new website at profedu.ca and use the feedback button to let us know what you think. We’d love to hear from you.
