TTISS-ON Annual Meeting 2018

The 2018 annual meeting was held on Friday, December 7, 2018 in Toronto, ON. The morning started off with a talk from Joanne Duncan, helping us keep TTISS-ON in Perspective, followed by a talk from Dr. Christine Cserti-Gazdewich on Using Our Grey Matter on the Grey Areas. Following a refreshment break, we heard from Dr. Pierre-Aurèle Morin on Hemovigilance in Quebec, Dr. Bob Skeate on Considering Bacterial Contamination Imputability Definitions, and Prof. Nancy Heddle who gave a research update on A Pragmatic Hospital Based Hemovigilance System.

After lunch, we ended the annual meeting with a talk about the Transfusion Reaction Reporting Guidelines by Ana Lima and a table review of three transfusion reaction cases, which were then presented by Dr. Pierre-Aurèle Morin, Dr. Shouyan Ning, and Dr. Valérie Arsenault. Although it was a cold day in Toronto, we had a great day inside networking, learning, and sharing!
