About

Our services

We provide a variety of pharmacy services for inpatients and outpatients.

Direct patient care & consultation

Pharmacists are directly involved on the wards with the health care teams. They provide information to doctors and nurses on drug therapy during rounds, and meet with patients and their families to take medication histories and provide teaching on discharge medications.

Medication distribution & compounding services

The Pharmacy Department distributes all medications to the inpatient population through a variety of systems which include state-of-the-art technology and automation to ensure the highest level of patient safety.
 
Intravenous medications, including those used for treatment of cancer, and specialized feeding solution doses are prepared in a clean room that meets the highest environmental and quality standards. Staff working in this area receives specialized training in aseptic techniques.

Education, training & teaching support

The Pharmacy Department works collaboratively with UBC to support pharmacy, nursing and physician student teaching both on site and at the university. The department is also significantly involved with postgraduate pharmacy training and ongoing education for pharmacists, nurses and physicians.

Research activities

Staff members are involved in many research initiatives both as independent practitioners and in collaboration with physician researchers.
