Medication errors can have serious, and at times, life threatening consequences. VIRTUAL MEDICATION SAFETY FOR TECHNICIANS is a multimedia learning tool designed to simulate the day-to-day experiences of a pharmacy technician, with special emphasis on the most common medication errors encountered in practice. Through a "virtual" pharmacy, you will be provided with a safe environment to practice responding to customer requests, interacting with the pharmacist and co-workers, and handling the challenges that arise each day at the pharmacy. In addition, you will be exposed to different types of high-risk, life-threatening medication errors so that you will learn how errors occur and how to systematically reduce those errors. Through practice and application in a low risk setting, you will be able to hone the professional skill-set needed to succeed in your externship and on the job. VIRTUAL MEDICATION SAFETY FOR TECHNICIANS is a must have for anyone preparing for a career as a pharmacy technician.
