About the Dr. Charlie Bayliff Memorial Award
Members of the Canadian pharmacy community suffered a significant loss in January 2010 with the passing of Charles D. Bayliff [7T2] following a lengthy battle with cancer. Charlie had a wonderful career in hospital pharmacy. This was clearly a win-win scenario for both patients and our profession. Charlie made significant contributions in patient care and derived great satisfaction from his pharmacy-based drug therapy recommendations. These impacted many colleagues in medicine, clinical pharmacology and pharmacy. To Charlie, staff members, physicians, residents, researchers, and students were all his peers. His passion for a high standard of professional practice was evident to all. Charlie’s infectious enthusiasm and ‘can-do’, ‘why not’ attitude helped create first rate care teams throughout his career.
As an enduring tribute, the profession has established a scholarship fund in Charlie’s name at the School of Pharmacy, University of Waterloo. This fund will provide financial support for new graduates who have been accepted into a hospital pharmacy residency program.
