Are you a technician? We want to hear from you. The College has made engaging with its registrants a strategic priority over the coming year and we are rolling out a series of tools including surveys, online forums, and the chance to voice your opinion and participate in a discussion at a regional town hall being held for all registrants across the province this year. As a new registrant of the College we want to make sure we’re doing a good job of integrating technicians.
At the 7th Annual Pharmacy Technician Conference in October, the College opened up the floor to pharmacy technicians on two key issues that directly affect them: the scope of practice for technicians and how technicians would like to be integrated into the College’s governing structure. The feedback on scope changes were provided to the board and to the Ministry of Health to help them make the final decision on whether the change should move forward.
Integrating technicians into the College is a key priority of the College. While much has been done, including incorporating technicians onto College committees so that every committee has a technician voice, the College is actively looking at other possibilities to better integrate technicians into the College. Keep an eye out for your opportunity to be a part of the conversation on things the College can do to better integrate technicians into the College.
