Pharmacy Technician Day
Pharmacy Technician Day was first endorsed by Pharmacy Technician Educators Association, American Association of Pharmacy Technicians, Inc. – AAPT and Pharmacy Technician Certification Board in 2015. This year, on October 16th, CAPT is proud to collaborate with USA and UK in celebrating and recognizing Canadian pharmacy technicians . The third Tuesday of each year is now proclaimed by CAPT as National Pharmacy Technician Day and published on Health Canada website as a national health promotion day.
Here are a few ways you can take part in the celebrations:
1. Get social – use #RxTechDay2018 on all your social media posts, download and share our graphics and posters on social media or print them to post in your pharmacy
2. Join and support pharmacy technician associations as they continue to strongly advocate for you and your profession
3. Educate the public on the role a pharmacy technician plays within the healthcare team and how a pharmacy technician’s role differs from pharmacy assistants and pharmacists
