Hi, my name is Tara Oxford and I am the current District 3 Board Member at the College of Pharmacists of BC. I also proudly serve as the Chair of the Community Pharmacy Advisory Committee at the CPBC.
As my day to day role, I am the Pharmacy Manager at London Drugs in Courtenay, Vancouver Island, and have held this position since July 2011. Prior to this, I was the Pharmacy Manager in Campbell River.
I live in Courtenay with my husband and two lovely children and have been a registered member in good standing with the College of Pharmacists of BC for 9 years.
I graduated from Aston University, Birmingham, UK in 1996 with a BSc Honors degree in Pharmacy and started practicing as a Pharmacist in June 1997. Subsequently, I gained extensive experience in both clinical and management roles. I have also participated on my local committee of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain.
Currently, I have gained and consistently use the following designations in my daily practice on the Island:
- Certified Anticoagulation Pharmacist
- Certified Diabetes Educator
- Certified Immunization Pharmacist
- Experience working with Nursing Homes and small group homes.
As a frontline Pharmacist, I am a stringent supporter of my community, patients, my staff and the Pharmacy profession. We are an integral part of patient healthcare system and with our expanding scope of practice, I feel we are well positioned to meet the health care challenges and improving patient outcomes.
I wish to continue my role as District 3 Board member as there is still more work to be done. I am seeking re-election so I can not only continue to represent my colleagues in District 3, but to represent all my colleagues in BC with the goal of expanding practice whilst upholding the College’s objective to serve and protect the public.
Kind regards and thank you for your support!
