There are a lot of people involved in the organ donation and transplant process in our province. From doctors and nurses, to dieticians and pharmacists—each and every one of them play a vital role in helping people in BC get a second chance at life.
Davinder is one of those heroes.
I’ve been working as the Pharmacy Manager at Somerset Pharmacy
in Surrey since 2010. The focus of our pharmacy is to ensure our patients, including transplant recipients, receive medication regimens so they can function at an optimal level. In working with the transplant clinics, we can help ensure that optimal health outcomes are achieved for our patients.
I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Pharmacy from the University of British Columbia in 2003. I enjoy working with transplant medication because of the complex nature of the transplant drug regimens. I also enjoy the opportunity transplant medication allows to collaborate with other health care professionals for the greater care of the patient.
The most rewarding part of my job is when I can simplify drug therapy for my patients. Whether it’s improving compliance or sitting down with patients and performing a medication review—it’s rewarding to be part of their lives and to see transplant recipients free from the illnesses that causes them to need transplants in the first place.
