Saskatchewan video series receives award

“Solid Organ Transplantation – a Miniseries for Patients” received the Excellence in Pharmacy Practice – Leadership Award as part of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists National Awards & Fellows Recognition Ceremony.

For Saskatchewan pharmacists Holly Mansell and Nicola Rosaasen, the idea for a series of videos for kidney transplant patients came from the patients’ questions. “A lot of questions,” says Holly, formerly a member of the Saskatchewan Transplant Program team and now an associate professor at the University of Saskatchewan, “and not just around medications as we had thought, but around everything to do with transplant.”

The resulting 6-video series entitled, “Solid Organ Transplantation – a Miniseries for Patients” received the Excellence in Pharmacy Practice – Leadership Award as part of the Canadian Society of Hospital Pharmacists (CSHP) National Awards & Fellows Recognition Ceremony. The award was sponsored by HealthPRO, who is also a program sponsor of the CSHP conference. No one could be more humbled by recognition from their peers than Mansell and Rosaasen, who undertook the project with no prior video production experience but with a sincere desire to help their clients be more informed about a complex and life-altering procedure.
