Update on Pharmacy Technician/Pharmacist Ratios

Revisions to the Pharmacy Practice Regulations regarding the increase in Pharmacy Technician/Pharmacist ratios have been completed and effective August 1, 2016, the ratio is three Pharmacy Technicians to one Pharmacist.  This ratio applies to all practice settings.  Please bear in mind that, regardless of the ratio, that those tasks authorized to be conducted by Pharmacy Technicians may only be performed under the direct and immediate supervision of a Pharmacist.  It is the responsibility of the Pharmacist-In-Charge as well as supervising pharmacists to provide supervision of duties of the pharmacy technician and to prevent pharmacy technicians from performing those functions relative to dispensing which are functions based on a judgement for which the pharmacy technician has not been prepared by education or authorized by law or regulation.  The Pharmacist-In-Charge (PIC) is responsible for assuring that all personnel are properly registered with the Board.  If you have questions concerning ratios or approved tasks of a Pharmacy Technician please contact the office of the Board.
