Killexams : Reaching a Milestone in Pharmacy

A Little History

In May 2000, NABP approved a resolution to review existing technician certification programs to see whether the development of a national assessment program should be a cooperative effort with other groups. To NABP, joining with PTCB, an organization that has been certifying technicians for 7 years, was a logical course of action. "Our partnership with PTCB creates a synergistic relationship that combines the strengths of PTCB with NABP's expertise in examination development and administration," said Carmen Catizone, executive director of NABP and secretary of the NABP Executive Committee.

This announcement follows 15 months of PTCB and NABP working jointly to address the NABP resolution. "National certification of technicians is a means of increasing the opportunities available to technicians to serve as meaningful members of the pharmacist care team," said Catizone. "It provides the pharmacist with competent technicians to assist in the practice of pharmacy, and, ultimately and most importantly, it should result in better patient care."

The collaboration also creates a direct link to the state boards of pharmacy, noted Catizone. He hopes this will facilitate state boards' decision making on use of technicians and implementing the appropriate competence assessment requirements to allow the role of the technician to expand.

Since its inception in 1995, PTCB has certified more than 100,000 technicians. The need for the PTCB certification program grows as technicians and pharmacists are faced with increased prescription volumes and pharmacy manpower challenges, according to Murer. "PTCB certification is one important step along the path toward making pharmacy technician a well-defined position in pharmacy."

Catizone agreed, saying, "National certification of technicians will help establish a competence level for technicians to assist pharmacists in the practice of pharmacy. "Once this occurs, state boards of pharmacy and pharmacists will be able to responsibly expand the role of the technician to provide more time for the pharmacist to provide patient care services."
