March is Pharmacy Awareness Month (PAM). Let’s take the time to share how proud we are to be pharmacy technicians and have a little fun in the process.
2019 Promo Pins
PTSA is no longer taking orders, due to high demand our stock is depleted! Thank-you for making this year such a huge success!
Here are some way for how you can get involved. Check back throughout the month for more ideas.
We want to see the snapshots and selfies of you, your teammates and your patients wearing one (or more!) of the #PAM2019 promo pins. Share your pics on social media using the hashtags #PTSApam2019, #PAM2019. Follow PTSA on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram throughout the month.
Promote your Role
Pharmacy technicians are essential health professionals who have a defined set of skills that positively impact patients and pharmacy practice. Take the time to help your patients or your colleagues become more familiar with your scope of practice. Share this pamphlet with your patients to help them get to know some of the things you can do.
Add to your CEU Count
Set a goal to complete at least one new learning activity this month. Attend the March 25, 2019 Techs in Touch Continuing Education Event about how to utilize pharmacy technicians in a community pharmacy or checkout the online Education Courses.
Share in our Profession’s Success
Success Stories are a new and ongoing feature spotlighting pharmacy technicians and their practice. We hope they inspire you to challenge yourself and to grow your practice. Watch for new stories throughout the month. If you would like to share your story, or if you know someone else who should be featured contact us.
