Are you a technician who still needs continuing education (CE) hours before you renew your Ohio registration in March 31, or a certified technician who needs CE to re-certify? If yes, plan to attend the Spring 2020 Pharmacy Technician Education Program presented by the Ohio Pharmacists Foundation (OPF) on Sunday, March 1 at the Makoy Center in Hilliard.
This seminar is designed to meet the educational needs of pharmacy technicians and offers up to 7 contact hours (0.7 CEU) of CE credit for technicians. Topics include pharmacy law, patient/medication safety, antibiotic resistance, expanding roles for pharmacy technicians, compounding, pancreatic cancer, and opioid use disorder. This is a great opportunity to learn about the most recent information and network with other pharmacy technicians from across the state.
