Pharmacy Technician Day: October 20
What originated as a day of celebration hosted by the Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (US) has become an international opportunity to celebrate pharmacy technicians.
Pharmacy Technicians are essential health professionals with a defined set of skills that positively impact patients and pharmacy practice.
Let’s use this day to promote how our role is essential to the care of Albertans and have a bit of fun in the process.
