Branch Delegate Report – Spring/Summer 2018

The end of my 6-year term (2 x 3-year terms, actually). In the not-too-distant future I will be passing the torch to a very capable successor who I know will serve you well. Here’s some quick highlights of my activities since my last report to the branch:

  • Participated in all CSHP board meetings, provided feedback regarding CSHP motions and requests for input as requested by the executive director, and in consultation with the branch executive and council where necessary
  • Participated in all CSHP SK branch council meetings, including the Tri-party SCPP/PAS/CSHP meeting last December
  • Participated as a board member on the CSHP Finance and Audit committee
  • Participated as a board member and SK representative on the Excellence in Hospital Pharmacy Initiative

Other important pieces of CSHP news:

  • PPC 2019 will be changing from a 4-day conference to a 3-day conference; a PPC revitalization working group has been struck and is working through a number of suggestions and QI measures
  • PSNs have moved to the QID platform, and while some early glitches caused disruptions in activity, things are picking up once again; make sure you check out this 1-minute silent video, and well as further instructions regarding QID online and in iOS app format (Android app coming soon!) here
  • In this edition of the PostScript, you’ll see an article promoting a recent CSHP exposé in Hospital News – coordinated by Cathy Lyder, many of these contributions came from CSHP members, specifically several SK branch members
  • And last but certainly not least… executive director Myrella Roy is retiring at the end of the year; a search and select task force has been struck in order to identify her successor – stay tuned for more information as CSHP looks to the next chapter, perhaps you or someone you know could be at the helm!
