To provide excellence and leadership in patient care, research and teaching.
Through the activities of our members, all patients at Vancouver Acute will receive pharmaceutical care exceeding the standards established by the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists and the B.C. College of Pharmacists.
The academic role of the pharmacy department will continue to expand to facilitate the training of future members.
Research activities will continue to increase and these efforts will complement the provision of patient care services.
