Mentor360: Practice Collaboratives
APhA is seeking volunteers to serve as mentors for our newest member benefit Mentor360: Practice Collaboratives. APhA’s group-based mentor program focuses on bringing pharmacists together to fuel innovation and progress toward advancing pharmacy practice. Practice Collaboratives bring together a 2-4 person panel of experts on a defined topic area to serve as mentors to a small cohort of pharmacists (10-20 people) interested in learning and refining their pharmacy practice in the given topic area. nteractions between the cohort and experts will occur virtually via webinars and a closed community on the Engage platform where mentors can share their tips for advancing practice and pharmacist participants can ask questions to help break down barriers to their successful implementation. In 2017, 3 initial Practice Collaboratives will form to focus on defined components of precepting, collaborative practice agreements, and MTM. Mentor360: Please complete the interest form if you would like to participate in one of these initial offerings as either a mentor or mentee. Practice Collaboratives will launch in September 2017.
