With a distinguished 40 years in the profession, Myrella Roy is lauded for her progressive leadership and ability to build successful relationships within pharmacy, government and industry. Roy recently retired from her post as Executive Director of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSPH).
During her tenure, Roy oversaw the successful completion of the CSHP 2015, a vision of pharmacy practice excellence that challenged members across the country to commit to enhancing the profession. She also oversaw the launch of a medication management e-learning platform and the implementation of dozens of guidelines and critical position statements.
Outside of CSHP, Roy has held faculty positions at the Université of Montreal and Université Laval and volunteered overseas for Pharmacists Without Borders in Albania. She has also participated in numerous multi-stakeholder consultations, advocating for pharmacists and patient care.
“Myrella exemplifies what a true leader should be: a visionary who inspires others but is also willing to put in the hard work herself,” says CFP’s Executive Director Dayle Acorn. “I congratulate her on a lifetime of achievement in advancing the profession.”
