Includes bibliographies and index



This review by the American Pharmacy Association (APhA) is organized to correspond directly to the National Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination's Content Outline. The Content Outline, revised in March 2000, is based on a US national study of tasks pharmacy technicians perform in a variety of practice settings. So APhA's review is both a thorough primer on the many specific activities that pharmacy technicians actually perform and a detailed review of the knowledge that test candidates must master to pass the Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination. Fifteen concise yet detailed chapters are organized in four sections: basic information; prescription dispensing; maintaining medications and inventory control systems; and assisting with pharmacy administration and management. The latter three sections correspond to the three broad function areas found in the Pharmacy Technician Certification Examination Revised Content Outline.


  • Role of the pharmacy technician in pharmacy practice
  • pharmacy calculations, abbreviations and terminology
  • pharmacy law
  • drug classifications and formulations
  • what happens when a prescription is processed
  • assisting with pharmaceutical care activities
  • pharmacy computer systems and automation
  • interacting with patients
  • compounding, bulk compounding and radiopharmaceuticals
  • preparation of injectable drugs
  • how pharmacies are paid for prescriptions
  • inventory control and management
  • special considerations - drug formularies, storage, recalls and diversion
  • quality control and assurance
  • fitting into your workplace.
