Robin Ensom completed his BSc(Pharm) at the University of British Columbia in 1977, his hospital pharmacy residency at St Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver in 1978, and his PharmD at the Medical University of South Carolina in 1980. From 1980 to 1987, he was assistant professor and chair of the Division of Clinical Pharmacy, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of British Columbia, with a clinical practice in clinical pharmacokinetics at St Paul’s Hospital.

He completed a Creating Healthier Communities Fellowship through the American Hospital Association’s Health Forum, the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists’ Pharmacy Leadership Institute, and Foundations in Leadership for Catholic Organizations.

Lynda Chilibeck graduated from the University of Toronto in 1984 with a Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy degree. Following graduation, she worked in both community and hospital pharmacy practice in Timmins, Ontario, and subsequently at the Grey Bruce Regional Health Centre in Owen Sound, also in Ontario. Her career path then took her to a teaching hospital environment at Women’s College Hospital, in Toronto, where she practised as a clinical pharmacist before taking on a teaching and managerial role. In 1994 she accepted the position of pharmacy operations manager at Peel Memorial Hospital. In 1996 Lynda moved to Peterborough Civic Hospital, where she became involved in several pharmacy projects and improvement opportunities which further developed her clinical knowledge.

In 2003, with a move to become manager of pharmacy services, Lynda saw the opportunity to return to management and to combine her clinical knowledge and administrative training in one position. Lynda played a leadership role in various initiatives across the organization. As a strong proponent of medication safety, she was instrumental in developing both a corporate and an internal Medication Safety Committee. Lynda was the pharmacy lead for the planning and implementation of the automated medication dispensing system at Peterborough Regional Health Centre. She was the Ontario recipient of the Douglas J Stewart Award for Excellence in Hospital Pharmacy Administration for her work on this initiative.

Lynda has recently been involved in establishing the pharmacist role in primary care and has worked on program and team development for the Peterborough Family Health Teams. She continues to work toward a seamless care model for patient care by collaborating with colleagues in acute and primary care.

With her clinical knowledge and management background, she has worked with both the Ontario College of Pharmacists and the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP) in various capacities. Lynda is actively involved as an assessor with the Practice Review Program at the Ontario College of Pharmacists, and has worked with CSHP at both the national and the provincial level. She was a presidential officer for Ontario from 1998 to 2001. In addition to her presidential role, Lynda has served as a chapter chair, Ontario Branch committee chair, branch secretary, and branch treasurer. Nationally, Lynda has served as a member of the Nominations Committee and continues to be an active member of the national Finance Committee. Lynda was the recipient of the Ontario Branch Award in 2002.

Communication, consultation, medication safety, and a passion for pharmacy have been cornerstones of Lynda’s career.
