Transitions of Care Special Interest Group (SIG) Community, APhA Academy of Pharmacy Practice & Management (SIG)

The mission of the APhA-APPM Transitions of Care Special Interest Group (SIG) is to create a professional network of pharmacists and technicians who are working to overcome the transitional challenges and enhance the collaboration among pharmacists in all practice settings as they provide care to patients during transitions to/from various health care settings.


The purpose of the APhA-APPM Transitions of Care SIG is to provide a community where pharmacists and technicians in all practice settings can navigate the complex health care system by sharing ideas on how to collaborate in optimizing transitions of care.
