If you are looking to build or advance your career as a Pharmacy Assistant the experience you will receive at Stafford Pharmacy & Home Healthcare will serve you well.
We are currently recruiting to maintain our technical staffing levels.
We are a community pharmacy, operating under the PharmaChoice banner, located in Lethbridge, Alberta. We are a busy independently owned community pharmacy with specialization in custom compounding for both human and veterinary clients. We also specialize in home healthcare products and services, with a home healthcare department which is managed by a registered nurse and staffed by several home healthcare consultants.
This position involves the full spectrum of technical duties including: – customer service; patient file administration; accepting prescriptions from clients; creating/updating patient electronic files; administering 3rd party billing; filling prescriptions (new & refill); compliance packaging; assisting clinical pharmacists by scheduling/organizing medication reviews and patient care plans; managing patient follow ups; maintaining perpetual drug inventories, that includes (but not limited to) product ordering; receiving of orders and drug file maintenance; assisting professional, technical & administrative staff in the management of a busy pharmacy.
Technicians and assistants are involved in non-sterile and sterile compounding, dependent on qualifications, training and experience. This includes the preparation of customized dosage forms, for both human and animal patients. Compounding for human patients continues to be our focus, but veterinary compounding offers a unique opportunity to be part of the customized care and treatment of a wide variety of companion animals. That includes the expected canine and feline patients as well as the more exotic patients such as ferrets, birds, snakes, hedgehogs, guinea pigs, lizards, frogs, and much more.
The position requires that applicants be graduates of a recognized pharmacy diploma program. This would have included exposure to both non-sterile and sterile compounding with a community pharmacy and hospital pharmacy practicum. We invite new graduates to apply as well as those with experience in community pharmacy. Experience in a compounding pharmacy is certainly an advantage but is NOT a pre-requisite for employment. An interest in compounding is essential however as well as an interest in continuing education.
