  • Description
    Introducing the second edition of Mary Mohr's Lab Experiences for the Pharmacy Technician, a text filled with practical, hands-on laboratory exercises. This book is an ideal laboratory manual for pharmacy technician programs, covering the skills needed to dispense retail prescriptions, inpatient prescription orders, I.V. admixtures, and extemporaneous compounds. In addition, the book covers crucial skills like measuring, mixing, molding, packaging, and labeling medications, all in a reader-focused style that emphasizes engagement and real-world application.
    Now with an updated retail dispensing simulation, this new edition includes step-by-step laboratory exercises and pre-lab and post-lab questions to promote critical thinking. Also included are role-playing scenarios to fine-tune students' patient communication skills. An appendix provides instructors with lists of required equipment and chemicals necessary to create a lab.
