Hospital Pharmacy Technician Project; Development and Validation of the Task Inventory. Interim Report.
Henrich, Robert R.; Goldsmith, Katherine L.
Evaluations of existing pharmacy personnel programs and personal interviews with leaders in the field were conducted to develop a pharmacist and technician task list. Using the survey instrument developed for other occupations, the National Technical Advisory Committee for Pharmacy analyzed and validated the task list. The final organization of the task list contains tasks performed by the pharmacist and technician in dispensing pharmaceuticals, manufacturing bulk compound, prepackaging, sterile solution manufacturing, purchasing and storing, and administration of pharmaceuticals. It was recommended that the task list be used as a guide to break down each task into smaller units and that the tasks be analyzed to determine whether they should be taught in a classroom or clinical situation. In addition to the task list development, the need for pharmacy technicians was demonstrated. Additional background information is available in ED 037 570 and other allied health projects are available as VT 011 425-VT 011 432 in this issue. (SB)
