Medication Management SIG
APhA Medication Management Special Interest Group (SIG) Community, APhA Accademy of Pharmacy Practice & Management (APhA-APPM)
The mission of the APhA Medication Management Special Interest Group (SIG) is to create a professional network of pharmacists who share an interest in all or any aspect of medication therapy management (MTM) services.
The purpose of the APhA Medication Management SIG is to create an online community where pharmacists from different areas of practice have the opportunity to communicate professional interests, concerns, and prospective goals for MTM services. This community will serve as a conduit for APhA to address the needs of practicing pharmacists in order to continuously and actively shape the provision of pharmacist-led MTM services into financially viable models of practice that produce improved patient outcomes.
