Pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, pharmacy assistants and support staff of the Pharmacy Department provide compassionate care to inpatients and ambulatory care patients at The Ottawa Hospital. We promote and apply medication practices which enhance patient safety and maintain active involvement in education and research.

Our Services

Clinical pharmacy services are provided by pharmacists in most medical, surgical and critical care areas. Pharmacists are also involved in selected outpatient programs including Thrombosis, Immunodeficiency, Bone Marrow Transplant, Oncology, Nephrology and Diabetes Education.

As part of the health-care team, pharmacists are responsible for monitoring and optimizing drug therapy. We also support, initiate and conduct research to evaluate new drugs, practices and programs. We provide a dynamic learning environment and work with educational institutions to train pharmacy students, residents, technicians and assistants. We also promote and provide an active continuing education program to further improve our services.

Pharmacists interact with other health- care professionals and provide clinical services for patients by using an evidence-based approach to monitor and optimize drug therapy outcomes.
