Health Sciences Centre Pharmacy Services

Pharmacists working out of satellite pharmacy or central pharmacy locations provide integrated, clinical-distributive service to inpatients of this 808-bed tertiary care facility. Using a decentralized model of practice, pharmacists provide direct patient care to Surgery and Medicine patients with a wide range of tertiary subspecialty care needs. Decentralized pharmacists also provide direct patient care for Women’s Health, Renal Health and Emergency patients. Other pharmacists provide care to patients in a selected service area:

• Adult Medical Critical Care
• Adult Surgical Critical Care
• Blood & Marrow Transplant/Oncology
• General Pediatrics
• Intravitreal Program (operates from Misericordia Health Centre)
• Investigational Drugs Service
• Manitoba Renal Program (hemodialysis and renal clinics)
• Mental Health
• Neonatal Critical Care
• Pediatric Critical Care
• Primary Care at Northern Connections Medical Centre
• PRIME Program at Misericordia Health Centre
• Renal Transplant Clinic

HSC’s tertiary care environment means that pharmacists have opportunities to sub-specialize in one or more areas over the course of a career. Pharmacists participate actively as members of, or consultants to, multidisciplinary care teams. The on-site Kishor Mehta Drug Information Centre offers excellent access to drug information consultation services for members of the healthcare community – public drug information support is available from HealthLinks. Pharmacists have access to expert coaching via advanced practice and Drug Information Centre pharmacists.

In most areas of the Centre, pharmacy technicians and assistants facilitate care by supporting the computerized (Cerner HealthVision), automated unit-dose (Pyxis) and wardstock drug distribution systems. Selected areas are supported by a computerized, manual cart-fill unit-dose drug distribution system. Pharmacy technicians and assistants also provide centralized IV admixture services, TPN and oncology admixture services, investigational drug services, pharmacy purchasing, bulk compounding, wardstock, and inventory control systems.

Health Sciences Centre Pharmacy Services offers a friendly and intellectually exciting environment in which to grow pharmacy and personal skills. Critical Care satellite pharmacies are open 24 hours a day, every day of the year. Most other pharmacy service areas are open days and evenings, daily.
