Ambulatory Care

The Ambulatory Care Practice and Research Network (PRN) is one of the largest ACCP PRNs. We serve a variety of different practice types (outpatient hospital, community, research, physician office, VA, etc.) and practice areas (primary care, geriatrics, pediatrics, anticoagulation, lipid management, diabetes management, pain management, etc).

Our PRN has various committees that help to focus our efforts and make the PRN productive. New practitioners interested in becoming more involved in ACCP are encouraged to volunteer for one of the committees. A semi-annual newsletter (typically April/October) is prepared by the communications committee.

One of the best resources within ACCP is our knowledgeable membership. Members can gain access to the brainpower of other members through our PRN mailing list (list-serve). It helps clinicians and researchers answer difficult questions related to patient care, billing, management, literature evaluation and other topics. Pharmacists who are not practicing in Ambulatory Care often join our PRN just for this resource. Joining the Ambulatory Care PRN is a great way to start networking. Many ACCP leaders are members of the PRN and come to the PRN Networking sessions and Education sessions at ACCP meetings.

Critical Care

The Critical Care PRN, founded in 1992, optimizes pharmacotherapy outcomes through promotion of excellence and innovation in clinical pharmacy practice, research, and education. To achieve this, the PRN provides members with timely educational updates, opportunities to participate in multicenter research, and a forum for information sharing among a network of around 2000 critical care pharmacists and trainees nationally.

Opportunities and Resources for Trainee Members

Students are invited to expand their professional connections via the PRN networking forums at the ACCP Annual and Spring Meetings.

The ACCP Critical Care PRN welcomes all student, resident, and fellow (SRF) members and encourages activity and engagement in each of its committees: Communications, Membership, Programming, Recognition, Research, Social Media, Trainee Engagement, and Travel Awards. Each committee is led by a Chair and Chair-Elect and consists of a mixture of SRF members and clinical pharmacists who collaborate throughout the year on various committee charges. One additional opportunity for involvement is serving as the SRF Representative. Each year, one SRF member is selected to serve on the Critical Care PRN Steering Committee as a liaison and advocate for other SRF members. Applications for this position typically open in September, so be on the lookout!

The Trainee Engagement Committee provides support in recruiting and maintaining SRF members. Each year, PGY2 Critical Care and PGY2 Emergency Medicine residency program directors are provided information on free Critical Care PRN membership that can be distributed to PGY2 residents. This committee also coordinates an annual feedback survey specifically for SRF members to better optimize involvement opportunities, initiatives, and resources throughout the Critical Care PRN. Some initiatives include the SRF Member Quarterly Spotlight where we highlight outstanding achievements of a selected SRF member, the Poster Preview Session where SRF members can practice their poster presentations and receive feedback prior to the ACCP Annual Meeting, and Twitter Journal Clubs which are developed and facilitated by SRF members along with a mentor. The PRN provides an annual “Keeping Up with the Literature” document aimed at providing strategies and resources for staying current with medical literature and guidelines. To help identify critical care and pharmacy-related conferences for presenting trainee research project work, the PRN compiles a Conferences and Abstracts Guide with important dates and deadlines so SRF members can plan accordingly.

The Critical Care PRN values SRF member engagement within the profession and provides financial support to do so. The PGY2 Critical Care Resident Research grant offers financial support for residents conducting innovative critical care pharmacy research. Additionally, two Critical Care PRN Student Travel Awards and two Critical Care PRN Resident/Fellow Travel Awards are available each year to offset costs for attending and presenting research at the ACCP Annual Meeting. The PRN is active on social media (Twitter: @accpcritprn; Facebook) and encourages SRF members to engage and network through these platforms!
