Shady Botros

I am a New Zealand trained pharmacist and I graduated from the University of Otago in 2000. After completing my pre-registration training in Gisborne hospital, I joined the clinical pharmacy team at Middlemore hospital in Auckland where I developed the first theatre pharmacy post in Australasia. I moved to the UK in 2004 and worked in England for 2 years before moving to Scotland and joining NHS Tayside in 2006 where I currently hold the post of lead clinical pharmacist for Surgery, Orthopaedics and Critical Care.

In 2011 I completed a Masters degree in prescribing sciences from the University of Robert Gordon and I am a qualified independent prescribing pharmacist. I have special interest in Quality Improvement Sciences and Patient Safety and as a faculty member of the Scottish Patient Safety Program helped develop a number of national patient safety initiatives such as Medicines Reconciliation and antibiotic stewardship. In 2012 I gained a fellowship in patient safety from the Scottish Patient Safety Program (SPSP) and have since helped support the Scottish “Improving Care for Older People in Acute Care” Collaborative as an improvement adviser, served as a faculty member for the South of England “Improving Safety in Mental Health” Collaborative and I currently serve as an IHI faculty member for the Singapore Healthcare Improvement Network (SHINe) Collaborative and the HMC Best Care Always Collaborative in Qatar. I am also the surgical lead for Venous Thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis in my health board.
