Key areas of concentration include the role of the pharmacy technician in the pharmacy setting, an overview of medications used to treat specific body systems, a breakdown of the different classifications of drugs, and a review of the basic sciences at the core of pharmacy practice. It also offers helpful PTCB examination review, as well as information on career opportunities for pharmacy technicians with advice on getting a job and advancing in the profession. A full-color layout and hundreds of illustrations highlight important information and bring key concepts to life. Learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter help focus study time. Key terms with definitions introduce the vocabulary used in the pharmacy setting. Drug names with pronunciations demonstrate how to say and spell medication names correctly, an essential part of the pharmacy technicians job. Tech Notes offer helpful tips, hints, cautions, and safety information. A brief overview of anatomy and physiology offers a better understanding of how drugs work in the body. Mini drug monographs with pill photos include essential information on drug class, generic and trade name, strength of medication, route of administration, dosage, and more. Pharmacists Perspective boxes offer insights to the pharmacists point of view for various on-the-job situations. Do You Remember These Key Points? boxes summarize key concepts in each chapter. The Technicians Corner features learning exercises that relate new information to realistic clinical situations. A comprehensive glossary in both English and Spanish includes all key terms and definitions from the book. A new chapter on PTCB exam review offers a 125-question multiple-choice practice exam that mirrors the content and format of the actual exam.
