Complete Review for the Pharmacy Technician, 3rd Edition


This chapter is in all respects the heart of the book. Most technicians spend the majority of their time preparing drugs for dispensing by the pharmacist. Chapter 5 covers in detail what happens from the time a prescription is presented until the drug is delivered to the patient, including identifying steps in this process where medication errors commonly occur.
