I am very pleased to introduce a new member to our clinical team. Kristen Watt, owner and pharmacist at Kristen’s Pharmacy in Southampton, will be joining us in capacity of consultant pharmacist. She brings with her experience across sectors including LTC and community pharmacy, and she has a special interest and focus in palliative medicine. She has been working with the Grey Bruce Palliative Care Outreach Team providing consultations for palliative care patients across the region. Her role will include:

  • Biweekly rounds and chart reviews on palliative physician patients and at request of family physicians those patients as well, every other Wednesday

  • Availability to staff for telephone consultation around medication questions Monday-Friday, 0900-1600h

  • Consultation with patients and families around complex medication issues and questions on as needed basis

  • Information sessions for staff

Her role will not replace the role of Shoppers Drug Mart East, but rather supplement and provide an additional resource for us and our patients.

Please join me in welcoming Kristen to our team.

Dr. Alex Hodgson
