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 join often 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.

The GI/Liver/Nutrition (GILN) PRN was founded on October 25, 1999 in Kansas City, Missouri in order to establish a network of clinical pharmacists interested in promoting and advancing practice, research, and education in the areas of gastrointestinal (GI) disease, liver disease, and nutrition. The founding officers, Rosemary R. Berardi (Chair), William R. Garnett (Secretary/Treasurer), Rex O. Brown (Nominations Committee Chair), and Susan Sorrells (Communication/Newsletter Committee Chair), along with 25 participants helped to lay the foundation for the GILN PRN, which was officially recognized 84 days later, on January 17, 2000. The first official meeting of the GILN PRN reported 56 members.

The GILN membership has grown 400% since 2000, and now totals over 220 members, which include practitioners, fellows, residents, and students. Members of the GILN PRN have made significant contributions to the profession: 140+ papers authored or co-authored by a PRN member, 44 book chapters authored or co-authored by a PRN member, 100+ posters presented at meetings, and 300+ presentations at meetings. Additionally, many of our members hold certifications including BCPS, BCACP, and BCNSP. Many of our members have also received various honors, awards, and grants toward GILN-related research.

The GILN PRN offers many opportunities for practitioners, residents, fellows, and students. These opportunities include travel awards for residents, fellows, and/or students, networking with experienced practitioners, and involvement in the leadership of the PRN.
