Relationship with patients important for pharmacy techs

by on December 20th, 2012 in Articles

Pharmacy technicians work with patients to achieve positive health outcomes, reduce health care expenses and provide a range of essential, niche services.

The pharmaceutical industry is experiencing growth and the demand for pharmacy technicians is also growing. However, a solid training is required to enter this career field and build a long-lasting profession as a pharmacy technician.

It is important for pharmacy technicians to have a strong relationship with patients by monitoring a patients’ full medication regimen to prevent drug interactions, promote the appropriate use of generic drugs to lower costs, encourage the taking of medication as directed and provide access to additional health services, such as immunizations.

“Every day independent community pharmacists help patients get the full medical and economic value from their prescription drug benefit,” said National Community Pharmacist Association CEO B. Douglas Hoey. The same is true for pharmacy technicians who also play an important role in the growing pharmaceutical industry.
“Studies have shown that, when properly utilized, community pharmacists can improve health outcomes and reduce costs,” Hoey added in a press release published on the NCPA’s website. “We encourage health plan sponsors and policymakers to support patient choice so that they can select a pharmacy provider that best meets their health needs and those of their family.”

Ayers Career College offers one of the nation’s great Pharmacy Technician training programs where students learn a wide variety of skills, including how to provide valuable technical and clerical support to pharmacists, mixing and re-packaging medication, and delivering drugs to patients. Students are also trained to maintain computer files dealing with patients and their medications and those records are vital to ensure the proper dosage and that unsafe medications are not issued to specific patients.
