  • Overview

    With a little over 1 in 10 Americans having a diagnosis of diabetes, it is inevitable that a pharmacy technician will encounter patients that are living with this disease state. Because of this, it is crucial that pharmacy technicians are educated on the use of various types of diabetic testing supplies as well as how to operate them. This session seeks to provide an overview on the multiple types of diabetic testing supplies available in pharmacies, their appropriate use and how these different testing supplies work together to effectively monitor a patient’s blood glucose.
