Calling All Technicians at the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting

Cheryl A. Thompson

Whether you are attending the ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting for the first time or you have joined us before, there's plenty in store for you in Las Vegas this December!

Don't get lost in the crowd—Stop by Information Central to pick up your Pharmacy Technician ribbon. Wear the ribbon on your ID badge so technicians from other facilities can identify you and share their experiences.

Orient yourself—Join us in Room N117 on Monday, December 4th from 8:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. for the Technician Membership and Meeting Orientation Session. This informal session is designed to help both first time and repeat attendees get the most from the Midyear Clinical Meeting. Learn about meeting activities and services, and get valuable tips on managing your time during the meeting. Educational sessions of interest will also be highlighted.

Increase your knowledge—There's an abundance of educational opportunities available this year. We've got it covered from preventing medication errors and preparing cytotoxic drugs to enhancing your presentation skills. And don't forget to attend the Technician Poster Presentations in the Exhibit Hall on Tuesday afternoon. A handy reference of "don't miss" sessions is enclosed. See the Midyear Program for more details about these and other great sessions.

Share your experiences—Do you practice in an unusual setting or perform unique duties? We'd love to hear about it. Stop by Information Central and pick up a written interview form. You can complete the form on-site or mail it back later. Completed interviews may be published on the Technician section of the ASHP Web site at www.ashp.org.

We look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas!
