Biography
Ms. Deborah Chan has had various contributions in nursing and health care for over 30 years. In most of her career life, she has worked in government public hospitals, attending intensive and complicated nursing and health care cases. She is well experienced in general nursing, intensive care nursing, critical care nursing, liver health care and psychosocial support for patients and their families.
 
Ms. Chan obtained her master’s degree in Science in Health Care in 2006. Her Master thesis was “Marital Adjustment after Spouse Donor Liver Transplantation”. The research findings were shared in the Annual Scientific Meeting of the Hong Kong Society of Transplantation Symposium in 2005. Then, she joined the Hong Kong Liver Transplant Patient Association to assist the rehabilitated people in promoting mutual support, liver health education and organ donation. During her stay in the association, she established a team consisting of medical experts and liver diseases recovered to promote liver health in secondary schools. She also organized activities to train a group of high school students to be “Liver Health Ambassadors” to help promote liver health education and organ donation in schools and communities. She has also successfully driven the production of two booklets on liver diseases and health care, 肝戈化玉帛 and 天下無雙之肝康縷析, which were published and widely distributed to the public with very positive feedback.
 
During her stay at the Queen Mary Hospital, Ms. Chan led the establishment of Psychosocial Support Group in Adult Intensive Care Unit and obtained second runner-up of Bright Idea Award on Spiritual Support to Adult Intensive Care Unit (AICU) Patients and Relatives in 2008. She was invited to the Radio Television Hong Kong to share her views on end-of-life support to patients and relatives in the Intensive Care Unit. The work of the group, apart from providing psychosocial assessment and spiritual support to the patients and their relatives, was later expanded to include psychosocial support to department staff and department unity.
 
Ms. Chan joined the newly established hospital, Gleneagles Hong Kong in 2017 to participate in the establishment of a Critical Care Unit that covers not only general serious illnesses, but also cardiac and paediatric intensive care services. She also assisted in setting up a Resuscitation Committee to audit each medical case for continuous improvement. At the same time, she worked to promote internal education and implemented Cardiac Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) drills among different departments with the necessary documentation for audit purpose. After completing hospital accreditation, Ms. Chan left Gleneagles and joined Tung Wah College at end of 2019 with a mission of training youngsters to be professional nurses.
