Dr. Victoria Su honoured as Affiliate Employer Health Care Hero at 2017 BC Health Care Awards

Jun 29, 2017 | News

Dr. Victoria Su cares about her patients. As a Clinical Pharmacy Specialist at St. Paul`s Hospital Adult Cystic Fibrosis Clinic, Dr. Su cares for patients who have been on antibiotics and other medications their entire lives, and are often resistant to frontline therapies. Her efforts were recognized by the BC Health Care Awards in the category of Affiliate Employer Health Care Hero.

To ensure her patients experience the best possible quality of life, Dr. Su navigates the complex process of obtaining experimental and compassionate treatment regimens. She reviews each case extensively so her patients don’t miss out on therapies that could improve their health, and will not take no for an answer when she finds a treatment she believes is right.

Dr. Su is involved in all aspects of her patient`s care, whether in hospital, at the clinic, or even at home. Once these complicated regimens are started, Dr. Su uses her extensive knowledge of pharmacology to ensure that doses are adjusted appropriately, and changes are made in response to her patient’s symptoms and laboratory results.

Dr. Su is also actively involved in research aimed at improving the outcomes and care for cystic fibrosis patients. For putting her extensive knowledge of pharmacology to work as a tenacious advocate for her patients’ well-being and quality of life, Dr. Victoria Su has been named this year’s Affiliate employer Health Care Hero.
