Carole McKiee this year’s Pillar of Pharmacy

Carole McKiee this year’s Pillar of Pharmacy

September 2016 – This year’s Pillar of Pharmacy Award winner Carole McKiee will be celebrated at a gala event at the King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto on October 27, 2016. 

McKiee will be honoured for her longstanding commitment to the pharmacy profession, including a career that has spanned more than four decades and covered multiple facets of pharmacy. “Carole’s dedication, hard work and vision will continue to have a profound impact on the people that she has touched and our profession as a whole,” said Roxanne Tang, director, Pharmacy Services at Medical Pharmacies Group Limited (MPGL).

Graduating first in her class from the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Pharmacy, Carole has realized an illustrious career spanning more than four decades and covering multiple facets of pharmacy. During her early years, Carole was a pharmacy director for a rehabilitation hospital.  She later spent nine years providing pharmacy services to long-term care and retirement homes as a clinical and consultant pharmacist. She has also held senior management positions with pharmacy chains both provincially and nationally. Carole spent the last 15 years with MPGL in an executive capacity where she has guided and directed the development of the company’s integrated pharmaceutical care model, as well as spearheaded government relations.

A central figure in advancing the profession, Carole has contributed to many pharmacy associations and government organizations throughout her career. One of her most significant achievements was in founding the Canadian Society of Consultant Pharmacists (CSCP), where she also served as president and led the council in developing the first-ever Canadian Standards of Practice for Long-Term Care.
