Thank you, Jummy for your detailed summary of Dr. Callum’s presentation during Medical Grand Rounds this past Thursday.

I was pleased to learn about Dr. Callum’s work in establishing new guidelines for blood transfusions in Ontario. It is encouraging to see research outcomes being translated into new practices in an efficient manner which will lead to limiting waste from our blood banks. I was also interested to learn about how Alberta’s single EMR system allows the province of Alberta’s healthcare system to use blood transfusion information more efficiently across the province. I see great value in moving to a single EMR system in other provinces as well, not only for blood transfusions but to improve information sharing for all patient health records.

I would also like to thank Dr. Callum for the candid discussion of her journey to her current role as a clinician-scientist at Queen’s. Dr. Callum was able to provide insight on the benefits and challenges of managing a multi-site research program and continuing to operate a research program while moving universities, providing an inspiration to all young researchers in attendance.
