The Role of the Clinical Pharmacy Technician

Description

The role of the clinical pharmacy technician, as a clinical pharmacist extender, is novel and expanding. Building on basic pharmacy technician skills, a clinical pharmacy technician performs functions ranging from administrative tasks to direct patient care to data management. The Army is taking steps to solidify the important contributions of clinical pharmacy technicians by creating a standardized position description and adding a clinical pharmacy technician fact sheet and competency-based orientation to the Army Medical Home Roles and Responsibilities Reference Manual. This session focuses on the role, responsibilities, and contributions of clinical pharmacy technicians in the Army Medical Home.
