With the understanding of hazardous drug management assessed by this program, pharmacy technicians will be better able to help protect, serve, and care for their patients.

I am the lead chemotherapy pharmacy technician trainer in our outpatient pharmacy, and my primary responsibility is compounding hazardous drugs and training all technicians in hazardous drug roles. I train experienced technicians in proper chemotherapy practices. 

My team spends much of our time preparing many different hazardous drugs, most often Vincristine, Cisplatin, Methotrexate, Busulfan, Carboplatin, Arsenic, Decitabine, Paclitaxel, and Tacro. 

It’s also my job to develop work procedures. I am currently helping with decisions to restructure and redesign the pharmacy as we plan for our upcoming construction project. Sometimes I assist at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital as well.

The new PTCB Hazardous Drug Management Certificate will strengthen a CPhT’s knowledge in all aspects of hazardous drugs. The program includes many informational components that cover the critically important knowledge that pharmacy teams must have. With the understanding of hazardous drug management assessed by this program, pharmacy technicians will be better able to help protect, serve, and care for their patients.
