How does consolidation of blood production and distribution services impact hospitals?

What is this research about?

Canadian Blood Services is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to manage the supply of blood and blood products in Canada, except for the Province of Québec. The majority of Canadian Blood Services activities relate to collection, production, testing, and distribution of transfusable products (red blood cells, plasma, and platelets). In recent years, to optimize its operations, Canadian Blood Services has looked at consolidating a number of its blood production and testing centres.
