THE DRUGSTORE Association of the Philippines (DSAP) in cooperation with Johnson & Johnson Philippines conducted mobile drugstore app orientation to enhance the knowledge of over-the- counter counsellors on competency-based learning modules for TESDA certificate NC3.
At least 75 drugstore owners and pharmacists from different parts of the country attended the momentous activity, titled: “Developing Pharmacy Assistants through Digital Technology Educating the OTC Counsellors Orientation” held recently at the Tandang Sora Hall of the TESDA Women’s Center in Taguig City.
DSAP, the largest group of local drugstores in the country teams up with JnJ to come up with the mobile drugstore app.
Vicente Briones, RPh, president of DSAP said the two-day event was crucial in equipping OTC counsellors in using a mobile learning application where users learn basic but important knowledge for different types of drugs and their function to the different systems of the human anatomy based on TESDA NC3 standards.
“Our duty is to strengthen the capacity and technical knowledge of over the counter staff of all our member drugstores so they can render quality services to the public,” said Briones.
