Pharmacy Awareness Month 2019


    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.

    #PAM2019 Pics

    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.

    Nominate the Next Pharmacy Technician of the Year

    Do you know a Pharmacy Technician or Pharmacy Assistant that goes above and beyond the regular call of duty to provide outstanding patient or customer care? Let them know how much they are appreciated by nominating them as CAPT’s Pharmacy Technician or Assistant of the Year. Submit your nominations by March 29, 2019.

    1. Hi! Just curious when the pins will be sent out and if we will receive confirmation on how many we will be receiving. Thanks!

    2. Hi Kayla,

      Thank you for inquiring. The first batch of pins will be sent out this weekend, so you should hopefully receive them next week. We will send out emails once the pins have been sent.
