Quarterly Update – June

Quarterly Pharmacy Technician HQ Update-June

Hi All, it has been busy. We are getting into the summer and I am starting to get a lot of personal questions about different pharmacy technician topics. I do my best to get to all the questions. I need to take some of them and create posts on them so everyone can benefit, but many are very specific to a person’s situation. I have ordered my new microphone, so future videos and podcasts will have better sound. I am excited about creating the pharmacy technician math tutorials with the pen pad and new microphone, it should be pretty good quality (you’ll have to let me know).

Next up: the Allegation training video should be next, top 100 drugs podcasts (Daniel sent me an email requesting this get moved up on my to do list – will do Daniel), looking into turning my last technician CE into a CE for the site (it might be cost prohibitive, but we’ll see), and I am working on an interactive (links to video and audio) e-book PTCB study guide (this will be for purchase, but I will throw it out to some of this site’s subscribers for a free review).

For my actual work, life as a hospital pharmacy manager has been crazy busy. I do not have a pharmacy director at the moment, so I have a lot more responsibility. Some of my staff know I have this site for pharmacy technicians, and they wonder how I do both. I don’t know if I have said it before, but I enjoy developing pharmacy technicians and teaching. I currently provide some education for pharmacy technicians, just finished a technician CE on pharmacology for our state pharmacy association, and teach pharmacy students a class on pharmacy management. To me, I am doing my part to grow our profession. Without improving the knowledge base of our pharmacy technicians, we cannot expand the role of pharmacy.

Okay, I didn’t want to go too long. As usual, if you have any comments or questions, please send them on. I do my best to answer any questions within 24 hours, but it sometimes takes longer.

My favorite nerdy pharmacy quote: “If you are not part of the solution, then you are part of the precipitate.”
