Canadian Health Professionals Secretariat supports BloodWatch in its call for federal and all provincial and territorial governments to prohibit paid blood and plasma donations.
The Canadian Health Professionals Secretariat (CHPS) is a national advocacy body that represents 100,000 unionized health professionals who deliver the diagnostic, clinical, rehabilitation and preventative services that are essential to timely and quality health care.
Some of the highly trained professionals represented by CHPS include medical laboratory technologists, physiotherapists, social workers, pharmacists, occupational therapists, dieticians and psychologists. These professionals work in hospitals, long-term care facilities, mental health services, laboratories, home care services and public health agencies.
