This course examines various drug distribution systems in pharmacy practice, with a focus on safe and effective drug supply and distribution in both institutional and community practice settings. Topics include inventory management and various business practices. Accurate product release within the parameters of the pharmacy technician role receives special emphasis.
PLAR is available for this course. All PLAR exams will be set up according to the number of students in need of a particular PLAR exam. No set dates have been organized; each student request will be considered and organized monthly for each PLAR exam. Contact with the coordinator will determine the date and time of exams.
Note: In some jurisdictions students may have to complete a structured practical evaluation following the Management of Drug Distribution Systems PLAR (managed by the Provincial Regulatory Authority) to verify the learners ability to consistently perform accurate product release in the workplace (independent double check). Students should contact the PRA in their province or territory for more information. A list of PRAs in the various provinces and territories of Canada is available on the NAPRA website.
