Demonstrating the Benefits of TCT

To assess the published evidence on TCT, a literature review was conducted using MEDLINE (1948–November 2010) and International Pharmaceutical Abstracts (1970– November 2010) and searching for "tech* and check" and "tech-check-tech." The bibliographies of all identified articles were examined to identify additional relevant literature. The 2009 National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) Survey of Pharmacy Law was used to identify states with active or pilot TCT programs;[17] the websites of the boards of pharmacy in those states were accessed, and applicable sections relating to laws, rules, and regulations were reviewed.
