Workplace Issues

Improving the quality of your practice environment is a top priority for APhA. Members have told us that administrative third party payment burdens, additional training, more and new technology, better equipped pharmacy technicians, and additional manpower are some of the biggest challenges faced in practice. Areas of this section provide information that may assist you as you look for ways to solve these challenges in your practice.

Pharmacist Workforce Center

The Pharmacy Manpower Project sponsors the National Demand Index, a monthly report on the state-by-state demand for pharmacists.

Stepping Stone Summits: Pharmacy Technicians (pdf)

In 1992, APhA in collaboration with several other pharmacy organizations, hosted a “Stepping Stones” conference that brought together pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and technician educators to develop recommendations on how best to utilize, train, educate, and regulate the pharmacy technicians who play a vital role in the practice of pharmacy.
