Free PTCB Supported Continuing Education Webinar

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) is hosting Advancing the Pharmacy Team: Innovative Roles for PTCB Certified Pharmacy Technicians, a free, continuing-pharmacy education activity designed to meet the needs of pharmacy technicians and pharmacists interested in learning more about expanding roles, training, certification, and the evolution and future of regulation of pharmacy technicians. This program is supported by an educational grant from PTCB. The webinar is available in two formats; web-based and podcast, and will address the following objectives:

  • Describe innovative opportunities for Pharmacy Technician Certification Board (PTCB) certified technicians to assist the health-system pharmacy team.
  • Discuss how pharmacists can be redeployed for clinical activities by utilizing certified pharmacy technicians.
  • Describe the importance of including pharmacy technicians in medication safety, quality assurance programs, and information technology implementations.
  • Explain the importance of pharmacy technician education, training, and certification in obtaining innovative positions.

Participants must view or listen to all presentations, take the activity post test, and complete the course evaluation to receive continuing education credit. A minimum score of 70 percent is required on the test for credit to be awarded, and participants may print their official statements of continuing education credit immediately. The estimated time to complete this activity is two hours. Registration and additional information are available online. ASHP membership is not required to participate in this program.
