Project Proposal: Implementation and Evaluation of a Certified Technician Training Program for Advanced Technician Services in a Large Community Pharmacy Chain
Sarah Huster, PharmD currently serves as the PGY1/PGY2 Community Pharmacy Administration Resident at Kroger Pharmacy in Cincinnati, Ohio. She graduated from Ohio Northern University in Ada,OH.
Current pharmacy standards and state laws establish that pharmacy technicians can effectively engage in advanced clinical and operational tasks, yet adoption has been slow. Increased involvement from pharmacy technicians is an essential strategy for developing and expanding pharmacy services within the community pharmacy setting.
"I am so grateful to have received this grant. I am excited to train and develop our certified pharmacy technicians to take on new responsibilities to enhance team-based care within the community pharmacy setting"
