Q  &  A

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