NPTGS is the professional leadership group for Scottish Pharmacy Technicians. In this interactive workshop we will be discussing ethical dilemmas focusing on professionalism, taking responsibility, role modelling and leadership. How do we promote professionalism and develop leadership within a diverse workforce in all pharmacy sectors? What can we learn from each other’s experience? Finally, how do we encourage role modelling within the professions?
