    • Overview

      The direction of pharmacy technician education and training has been a source of debate within the profession since the recommendation was first introduced in the 1960. Fifty years later, discussions continue, with both the definition and scope of practice for pharmacy technicians varying drastically from state to state. Multiple key events have once again drawn this debate into the national spotlight, yielding one advocacy organization to publish a grading system for each state's regulatory response to pharmacy technician educational requirements. Throughout the context of this session, influential events are examined within the context of our current framework for pharmacy technician education and training. Current pathways to pharmacy technician certification are addressed as well as key employment trends within the profession. The session is intended for both pharmacists and pharmacy technicians.
