The purpose of the APhA-APPM Transitions of Care SIG is to provide a community where pharmacists and technicians form all practice settings can navigate the complex healthcare system by sharing ideas on how to collaborate in order to optimize the care that patients receive during transitions of care.
The SIG is led by a volunteer Coordinator and Coordinator-elect. Leaders are available to answer SIG member questions.
APhA-APPM Transitions of Care SIG Practice Committee
The Practice Committee will focus on projects related to developing tools and resources for pharmacists and technicians in various transitions of care practice settings. The practice committee will also be responsible for coordinating 1-2 webinars annually. Webinar topics will be determined based on SIG ENGAGE community discussions, the SIG annual business meeting (during APhA Annual Meeting & Exposition), and SIG members’ input. The committee will work with APhA staff to determine speakers, timing, and management of the webinar(s).
APhA-APPM Transitions of Care SIG Communications Committee
The Communications Committee will lead SIG members in conversations related to care transitions including: policy and procedures; current research or articles; practice innovations; and payment models. The committee will utilize the APhA ENGAGE platform to share ideas and resources among SIG members and to highlight current APhA members practicing in TOC.
The APhA-APPM Transitions of Care SIG is seeking individuals to serve as Committee members and Committee Chairs for the SIG Committees. Interested members are encouraged to take advantage of this member benefit by submitting an application to volunteer by March 23! Members will be contacted by mid-April. For any questions please contact the SIG Coordinator and/or Coordinator-elect.
