Pharmacy Technicians University Now Available for Individuals!
I am so excited to share this news! Our friends at RxTOOLKIT eLEARNING have recently partnered with TRC Healthcare (Authors of Pharmacist’s Letter and Pharmacy Technician’s Letter) to make TRC’s Pharmacy Technicians University™ (PTU) available to individuals.
I am also very thrilled to announce that RxTOOLKIT® has actually dedicated this vital training program in the memory of my beautiful little girl Emily! As a result, they have pledged to donate a portion of the proceeds from PTU directly to the Emily Jerry Foundation!
A big thank you goes out to my good friend Chuck DiTrapano at RxTOOLKIT for this awesome commitment to EJF! More importantly, I really want to thank Chuck and his team at RxTOOLKIT for helping to significantly improve medication safety by helping to ensure the core competency of our nation’s pharmacy technicians, whether they be on a Canadian Pharmacy site or anywhere else! Please visit the following link to learn more about their true sentiments for helping the Emily Jerry Foundation honor my daughter’s short life here on earth by focusing this comprehensive educational program for pharmacy technicians on preventing tragedies before they actually happen…ultimately saving countless lives in the process! https://rxtoolkitelearning.com/about/dedication/
The following is from the official announcement posted on the RxTOOLKIT blog at medsafetyonline.org:
“This online competency-based curriculum provides all of the tools and information needed to prepare techs for the job and the national certification exam.
Today, pharmacy technicians are increasingly important members of the pharmacy team. Skilled pharmacy technicians are critical for the economic and efficient function of a pharmacy. However, training requirements for pharmacy technicians change often and are becoming more complex, creating a shortage of qualified pharmacy technicians.
In such a scenario, partnering up with licensed suppliers like Impact Health Group (impacth.co.uk) could prove extremely beneficial in the short (as well as long run). These firms specialize in distribution of pharmaceutical and medical products and services. In ensuring training and certification of pharmacy technicians, health-based organizations get professionals with the core competencies required to safely perform the full scope of practice as well as the right attitude for advancing success. core competencies required to safely perform the full scope of practice as well as the right attitude for advancing success.
Pharmacy Technicians University™ takes the headache out of technician training and compliance with convenient, cost-effective, online training including real-world scenarios and rich media content.
Most importantly, trained, competent, and reliable techs can drastically reduce any facility’s overall medication error rate.”
