The School of Pharmacy at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in collaboration with the Association of Pharmacy Technicians UK (APTUK) has issued their Final Report into a recent research study on the role of Pharmacy Technicians in the UK.
This new research by UEA and APTUK, conducted with the expertise Dr Jane Sutton, a freelance academic and Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Bath, asked pharmacy technicians what training they currently receive post-qualification to undertake their roles, and what training and support they consider was required to undertake these roles safely and effectively. Furthermore, the research also looked at what roles pharmacy technicians will, or could undertake, as the pharmacy profession evolves.
The report can now be viewed here
