Celebrating Australia’s technicians and pharmacy assistants

SHPA is a proud supporter of National Pharmacy Technician Day, Tuesday 20 October 2020.

Hospital pharmacy technicians and pharmacy assistants are integral to Australia’s hospital workforce. While their roles and responsibilities vary from hospital to hospital and state to state, the focus is the same: delivering precise technical services as an essential part of hospital pharmacy departments focused on patient care.

In our National Pharmacy Technician Day video, SHPA Chief Executive Kristin Michaels and SHPA Technicians and Assistants Chair Tara Clayson-Fisher reflect on the crucial roles technicians and pharmacy assistants fulfil every day, while we’re spreading the word throughout October through SHPA’s A4 poster and social media tile via @the_shpa and #PharmacyTechnicianDay.

SHPA is committed to advocating for the growth of technician and pharmacy assistant roles, as part of efforts to advance Australia’s pharmacy workforce. View more →

This November will again see the SHPA Technician of the Year award bestowed as part of our annual Members’ Awards, to be announced at the 2020 SHPA Virtual Congress on Sunday 22 November.
