Adult Medicine PRN

The ACCP Adult Medicine PRN is one of the largest and most diverse PRNs, encompassing pharmacists who practice in inpatient and outpatient settings, academia, and the pharmaceutical industry. Members of the Adult Medicine PRN work tirelessly to expand the frontiers of clinical pharmacy by improving patient care, conducting research, and providing education in their everyday practices.

The AMED PRN is excited for the 2017 Annual Meeting in Phoenix. The PRN hopes you can join PRN members for the PRN’s focus session on Sunday, October 8, 2017, at 4 p.m. (MST), “Feeling the Burn of Proton Pump Inhibitor Therapy: When Do the Risks Outweigh the Benefits.” The PRN will also conduct its annual business meeting and networking forum on Monday, October 9, 2017, at 6:30 p.m. (MST).

Education and Training PRN

Introduction

Over the past 6 months, the EDTR PRN committees have been preparing for the Annual Meeting as well as brainstorming additional avenues to support the development of its members. Specifically, the Professional Development Committee developed the first annual Teaching Enhancement Grant for PRN members to support educational initiatives. In addition, the PRN has expanded its social media presence with the use of Twitter and an increase in Facebook followers. Finally, several committees have worked together to adjust the PRN’s poster walk-rounds process for all PRN members, including students, residents, and fellows.
