On this Saturday's show Beth will be talking with Chris Cline-Dahlman about the Great Pivot in pharmacy Technician careers and how she pivoted in her own career and began working with PharmSaver. Many pharmacy technicians have been making changes like these to help them find career growth, get them out of a stressful work environment, or even provide them with a new engaging path. Opportunities for pharmacy technician advancement are becoming more prevalent as we continue to see things change in the independent and LTC pharmacy realm with pharmacists taking on more clinical roles.
Christine speaks on this in much more detail in her recent article “Pivot to Expand Professional Roles” in the April issue of Pharmacy Times: The Pharmacy Technician Edition. She mentions that technicians could seek new opportunities in 4 different areas: clinical practice, pharmacy business, technician education, and pioneer path. She expands on what she sees each of these types of roles looking like and what kind of possibilities they could offer. So the question is are there opportunities for technician advancement in your independent or LTC pharmacy? Have your practice settings begun to offer more community services like POCT or Med Sync? If so how can your technicians help? Nina Dartnell offers a Med Sync program that your technicians can access via the PharmTech 360° channel.
