SickKids VS: Heart in a Box Podcast
Fifty kids in Canada are waitlisted for a new heart each year. Of those, 30 to 35 will get one. Others continue waiting.

The TRMC has developed state-of-the-art immunization protocols for solid organ transplant patients. These protocols were developed in partnership with the Division of Infectious Diseases and are based on current immunization guidelines established by the Canadian National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI), the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care (ON MOHLTC) and experts in transplant medicine.
The protocols are suggested immunization schedules for pre- and post-solid organ transplant patients and are meant as a guide only and may not be applicable to all patients. Please consult the transplant team for the immunization protocols.
Immunization protocols are being updated for 2021.
To provide comprehensive continuing clinical care for transition and transfer of care to adult healthcare services across all transplant programs, the TRMC has developed transition of care guidelines. Download the guidelines through the link below.
