Nova Scotia Provincial Blood Coordinating Program

The Department of Health and Wellness continuously strives to make sure that Nova Scotians receive safe, quality health care and health-care services.

The Provincial Blood Coordinating Program was created in January 2003 and provides the leadership to collaborate with health care providers across the province and Canadian Blood Services to maximize the safe and appropriate management of blood and related products received by Nova Scotians.

In 2013, the NSPBCP celebrated its 10 year anniversary.  Watch the video below to discover the impact the program has made in utilization, patient safety and quality initiatives for transfusion medicine.
