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.
2020 Promo Pins
Four new pins are available this year to promote pharmacy. Pin stock has now been depleted.
Here are some ways 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 #PAM2020 promo pins. Share your pics on social media using the hashtags #PTSApam2020, #PAM2020. Follow PTSA on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn 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 the Getting To Know Your Pharmacy Technician Pamphlet or Pharmacy Technician Roles website page with your patients and colleagues.
Add to your CEU Count
Set a goal to complete at least one new learning activity this month. Checkout the online Education Courses. If you’re in Edmonton attend the Techs in Touch Continuing Education Event: Hepatitis C
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.
