Pharmacy technicians across the country are being celebrated today in recognition of National Pharmacy Technician Day.
The occasion has been widely recognized on Facebook and Twitter, where pharmacists and pharmacies are expressing their gratitude for their techs’ hard work and dedication to patient health. Pharmacy organizations are also honoring technicians through social media; the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB), for example, is encouraging technicians to show off their tech pride by sharing pictures of themselves in their pharmacies.
“Pharmacy technicians perform important work and carry out vital roles and responsibilities in their pharmacies every day in a wide range of practice settings,” PTCB executive director and CEO Everett B. McAllister, MPA, RPh, told Pharmacy Times. “National Pharmacy Technician Day is a special time to acknowledge their essential roles on the pharmacy team and express appreciation for their many contributions to patient care and safety.”
“Pharmacy technicians are valuable members of the health care team. High quality, comprehensive patient care services are provided with the contributions of these vital individuals,” added PTCB strategic alliances director Miriam A. Mobley Smith, PharmD, FASHP. “It’s an honor to celebrate the importance and many roles of pharmacy technicians.”
