Educate & Appreciate during Pharmacy Week: October 16th – 22nd, 2016

Sep 1st, 2016 - Pharmacy Week was created as a way to recognize “the invaluable contributions that pharmacists and technicians make to patient care in hospitals, ambulatory care clinics, and other healthcare settings.” This is the ideal week to show appreciation to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians by acknowledging, and educating about, the important roles they play in healthcare and patient care. The contributions of pharmacy technicians are even recognized on their own day: October 18th is National Pharmacy Technician Day.

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) has a list of “Pharmacy Week Ideas to Try” to spread knowledge about the field and create appreciation for pharmacists:
