Clinical Pharmacist

Profile submitted by: Kinson Tse

Brief description of role or responsibilities

Will is a residency-trained clinical pharmacist that practices at the Richmond Primary Care Network. He sees patients on a referral basis from family physicians and nurse practitioners for complex issues including polypharmacy, chronic pain, and medication education.

He previously worked at Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) covering multiple clinical areas such as medicine and various surgical areas including spine and orthopedics.

Describe how the individual or team made a positive contribution to patient care or their pharmacy department:

Since our time together at VGH, Will has always demonstrated a “patients first” attitude and has always strived for good outcomes for his patients. His down-to-earth attitude really makes patients comfortable and engaged (a really important trait as primary care is all about relationships).

He continues to exemplify the traits of an extraordinary clinical pharmacist by acting as a pillar for his community and colleagues. Fellow pharmacists and prescribers frequently consult Will for his pharmacotherapy opinion as he has a broad wealth of knowledge.

Thank you, Will!
