You must be able to explain state law requirements to your staff as a Pharmacy Manager. While pharmacists are generally familiar with state laws, Pharmacy Technicians may be unsure about certain issues. As a result, you will need to include content in your policy/procedure that explains key laws that Pharmacy Technicians must know and apply on a daily basis. This assignment will require you to demonstrate information literacy, ethics, and professional responsibility.
In preparation for this, you should:
Investigate and summarize your state’s laws pertaining to the duties of a Pharmacy Technician.
Explain how state laws align with the ethical behavior expected of pharmacy employers. Why are they necessary for demonstrating professional ethics? Discuss the ramifications of unethical behavior for both the employer and the customer.
