|Resources for Technicians|
The Section of Inpatient Care Practitioners Advisory Group on Pharmacy Technicians and Support Services is pleased to announce the launch of a new Connect community and a web-based resource center for Pharmacy Technicians. Both of these resources are designed for pharmacy technicians and those interested in advancing pharmacy technician roles to support successful pharmacy practice models.
The Pharmacy Technicians Connect community is a platform for individuals to discuss professional issues such as advanced technicians practice roles, improvements in workflow or operations, and new and evolving roles for pharmacy technicians. Connect offers pharmacy technicians the unique opportunity to obtain perspectives from colleagues from across the county. It is an open community; therefore, anyone may join and observe/participate in the virtual discussions.
The Pharmacy Technicians Resource Center provides information and resources for pharmacy technicians, and features case studies that support the goals of PPMI and demonstrate critical roles for pharmacy technicians, ASHP Statements, innovative roles for pharmacy technicians, information on technician training and education, professional resources for career advancement, and more. It also features ASHP's many products and services for technicians.
These new resources will be promoted to members, including technician members, later this month. The launch of these new services also supports the recommendation by the ASHP Task Force on Organizational Structure to advance pharmacy technician roles to support successful practice models and to increase pharmacy technician services and engagement within ASHP. Thank you to everyone involved and please help us to spread the word about these unique resources!
