Dear CTTC Members,
The CTTC is working with all of us to help get through this marathon. Through the efforts of all arms of our group we have been helping each other navigate difficult decisions as they have arisen. Working with our colleagues at CBS and Héma-Québec we have dealt with donor issues both for hematopoietic stem cell products and our blood supply. Tools that may be useful for your program can be found on the CTTCanada.org website – under the COVID-19 link. The CTTC COVID-19 Position Statement that Kristjan Paulson has been updating and programs are reporting useful in working with their institution. Further if you have good tools or links that you think others would find helpful please share them with us.
The CTTC 2020 scheduled for Québec City in June has been cancelled and we are looking at dates for the same place, Québec City, and same time period – June – next year. We will be having a virtual general membership meeting in a few months to review the budget, activities, and have the passing of the gavel. You will be receiving a slate of candidates for our open positions in the next few weeks for approval.
Stay safe and let us know if you need anything from CTTC.
