About the PRN

ACCP Practice and Research Networks (PRNs) were established to connect focused groups of clinical pharmacists to enhance professional support and collaboration. They each maintain an e-mail list for members to discuss key information in their fields, and their leadership prepares educational sessions to be delivered each year at the ACCP Annual Meeting. The PRNs amplify the voices of their members, allowing them to inform and guide ACCP policy from the clinician level.

The Ambulatory Care PRN is composed of pharmacists from a diverse array of outpatient settings with a particular emphasis on the provision of primary care for chronic diseases. It was one of the first two PRNs established in 1992 and has grown to be one of the largest PRNs each year. There are approximately 2400 active members including over 200 resident/fellow members. The PRN maintains an active e-mail list where clinicians and trainees discuss breaking research and share advice regarding practice development.

The PRN has several committees that work throughout the year to make it one of the premier PRNs. PRN Committees include Advocacy, Budget, Communications, Education, Membership, Networking, Nominations, Research Process, Scholarly Activity, Resident, and Student. If you would like to serve on a committee, please contact our leadership team!
