"As a Clinical Pharmacy Specialist in the Emergency Department at Surrey Memorial Hospital I work collaboratively with doctors, nurses, and other members of our interdisciplinary allied health team. I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to face [the pandemic] with such a skilled, dedicated, and compassionate group of health care professionals.

Whether it be in a trauma bay or the Care, Assessment and Treatment Zone (CATZ), each day I do my best to ensure that patients receive the safest and most effective medications based on their unique individual characteristics and needs.

Patients often feel overwhelmed and have questions after being started on new medications. I find it very rewarding to be able to use my expertise to help them understand why their medications are important, what side effects they may experience, and to help them improve adherence with their medication regimen by assisting with the transition of care from hospital to the community."
Jarred - Clinical Pharmacy Specialist, Surrey Memorial Hospital - Emergency
As a clinical pharmacist working in the High Acuity Unit (HAU) at Surrey Memorial Hospital, I have the privilege of working alongside intensivists, a critical care nurse practitioner, and a multi-disciplinary team to assist in optimizing medication therapies.  
 
Our HAU is an amazingly proficient unit capable of caring for a high volume of patients who require advanced monitoring and respiratory support. I value every day as an opportunity to improve care for some of the sickest patients in the hospital and am grateful for what each patient experience teaches me. I perform detailed medication histories, participate in interprofessional rounds, educate patients and families about their medications, and provide handover to pharmacist colleagues when patients transfer to other wards to continue their recovery.  
 
I also provide education to critical care nurses and precept pharmacy residents and students. I am thankful to the HAU team for supporting my practice and creating a wonderful work environment.
