OPTA is by oncology pharmacy technicians for oncology pharmacy technicians. We give our members this platform to connect and work together to advance personally and professionally to provide a higher level of care for our patients. For us, that means advocating for oncology pharmacy technicians to be an influential voice for patients undergoing cancer care. Membership is complimentary.
Complimentary Continuing Education For Pharmacy Technicians
By empowering pharmacy technicians, we can create better continuity of care for patients being treated with oral oncolytics. Through free continuing education for pharmacy technicians, we’re equipping technicians with the knowledge they need to provide quality care to cancer patients.
Our Mission is to strengthen and empower oncology pharmacy technicians in their increasingly vital role as part of the medically integrated team by providing leadership and professional development opportunities to ensure better outcomes for cancer patients.
