The role of our Pharmacy department is to provide pharmaceutical care to our patients and their parents; to contribute to the development of excellent paediatric practitioners through the provision of education programs; and to pursue research which directly enhances patient care.
The pharmacy utilizes a unit dose system to provide inpatient, outpatient and ambulatory clinic services. Pharmacy services are offered 24 hours a day, 365 days a year at our two centres.
Clinical pharmacy services are provided by teams of pharmacists and pharmacy technicians who function on the nursing units as part of the interdisciplinary effort. The pharmacy also provides a comprehensive therapeutic drug monitoring service, and an important resource evidence-based use of medications through the drug information service.
