I've believe for a long while now that pharmacists will soon be replaced by technology and lower-paid workers, and I've pointed out instances on this blog that lend credence to my claims.
I also think that many pharmacists live in denial about where the future of the profession is headed. It's a touchy subject that many pharmacists don't like to discuss. They don't want to believe that we could so easily be replaced by robots.
Perhaps it's because they listen to those with a vested interest in convincing pharmacists otherwise, or perhaps it's because it's just too frightening for pharmacists to accept. Who knows? But the way I see it, if the American Dream continues as is, eventually we will all be replaced.
Again, just don't take my word for it. See what the PBS Newshour reports about this subject -
