Dr Doreen Tan Su-Yin

Department of Pharmacy
National University of Singapore

Dr Doreen Tan Su-Yin is currently a fulltime Associate Professor with NUS Department of Pharmacy and Cardiology Specialist Pharmacist practicing at the National University Heart Center, Singapore. PERSUASION (PERSon centred drUg relAted Problem reSolutION) was Doreen’s brainchild as she wanted to push for person-centred conversations to be a core skillset in the delivery of care. A nationwide, multi-dsiciplinary steering committee was set up to provide inputs and pharmacists were trained by the MOH team on conversations. As the Pharmacist lead for the national AMI-HOPE (Acute Myocardial Infarction allied Health-Oriented Patient-centered digitally-Enabled care) program, a Health Services Development Programme (HSDP) award by Singapore’s Ministry of Health, she held the ground for person-centred conversations while integrating the utility of a digital-based post-myocardial infarction care program delivered by specialty-trained collaborative prescriber Pharmacists.

As an appointed member of the NUHS Steering Committee for Pharmacogenomics and lead for “Education” workstream, she leads the new series of ARPEGxIO (Asia-pacific Regional alliance: imPlEmenting pharmacoGenomics In Our clinical practice) which is planned to go live in 2023. At the national level, she is an appointed member of the PHARMFORCE Steering Committee, the ACE Appropriate Care Guideline for Hyperlipidaemia and Oral Anticoagulants in Atrial Fibrillation (revision).

She continues to lobby for rational use of cardiovascular pharmacotherapy and the value of CV team pharmacists in her role as Board member of the International Society of Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy (ISCP) through the founding of the A to Z of CV Pharmacotherapy webinar series, the ISCP CLAPs (CataLysing ReAl-World Cardiovascular Pharmacotherapy) and the new CV Pharmacotherapy Pearls.
