Report of the 2018 Maryland Pharmacy Technician Consensus Conference
The Maryland Pharmacy Coalition (MPC) (Appendix A) voted unanimously, in 2017, to support legislation for the State of Maryland that would mandate requirements consistent with the recommendations of the 2017 National Pharmacy Technician Stakeholder Consensus Conference. This decision stemmed from recognition that enhancing the educational requirements for pharmacy technicians will increase medication safety for Maryland patients and support additional direct patient-care services by pharmacists.
The 2018 Maryland Pharmacy Technician Consensus Conference (June 21, 2018) was designed to seek broad consensus in support of the action taken by the MPC and to identify specific issues that will need to be addressed as pharmacy leaders in the state move forward on the matter.
