Pharmacy technicians are rockstars!

Today we celebrate
Pharmacy Technicians!

 Pharmacy technicians are rockstars!

Get ready to celebrate National Pharm Tech Day today, October 17! It's the perfect time to show some love and appreciation to your Pharm Tech learners and future dedicated professionals. But why stop there? Let's celebrate them year-round!

Pharmacy technicians are the backbone of the pharmacy team. They play a vital role in ensuring that patients receive the safe and effective medications they need. They're responsible for a wide range of tasks, including preparing prescriptions, filling orders, and answering patient questions.

But pharmacy technicians are more than just order-fillers. They're also compassionate caregivers who go above and beyond to help their patients. They're always willing to listen to concerns, offer support, and make sure that patients understand their medications.

On National Pharm Tech Day, let's take a moment to thank those who have chosen this vital profession. They deserve our appreciation!

This month's Pharmacy Times supplement is dedicated to Pharmacy Technicians and explores important issues facing the profession, such as:

  • Embracing the Evolution of Pharmacy Technicians Post-Pandemic
  • Accelerating Pharmacy Technician Education to Practice
  • Point-of-Care Testing Offers New Opportunities for Pharmacy Technicians

Click here to read the full supplement and learn more about these and other issues relevant to pharmacy technicians.

Pharmacy technicians are essential to the healthcare team. Let's show them some love today!

We are here with you every step of the way, supporting and appreciating all that you do.
