Prescribed activity for pharmacy technicians for 2017 CE cycle

January 18, 2017

One of ACP’s strategic goals is for pharmacy technicians to be integrated into pharmacy practice teams, exercising responsibility for roles they are authorized to fulfill. To achieve this, pharmacy technicians must have a solid understanding of their role as well as a pharmacist’s role in pharmacy practice. Accordingly, the prescribed activity for the 2017 CE cycle is a Jurisprudence Self-Assessment that focuses on the scope of practice for pharmacy technicians and pharmacists. This self-assessment tool will test your knowledge and understanding of the complementary roles and responsibilities of both professions, and help you consider ways to further support your pharmacy team.

Get an early start on your annual Continuing Competence Program (CCP) and complete this Jurisprudence Self-Assessment found in the Self-Assessment/Prescribed Activities section of the CCP portal today!
