Survey Shows Broad Support Among Americans for Pharmacy Technician Certification
Date:12/5/2007

d enforcing strong regulations that require a standard of competence for pharmacy technicians," said Gay Dodson, R.Ph., Executive Director, Texas State Board of Pharmacy. "In Texas, the Legislature and State Board of Pharmacy were the first to require certification of pharmacy technicians as a pre-requisite to registration. This is an important first step for consumer protection and patient safety."

In fact, most respondents in the poll assumed that requirements are already in place across the country. Only 13% of respondents correctly recognized that there are no nationwide requirements for the training and certification of pharmacy technicians.

"It is time to live up to what consumers expect," said Douglas J. Scheckelhoff, R.Ph., M.S., FASHP, Vice President, Professional Development, ASHP. "We know patients deserve a high standard of safety when it comes to how their prescription medications are dispensed." "Now we know it is what they expect, as well."
