Ambulatory Care Advancement Coaching (ACAC) Workshop

Looking to enhance or implement ambulatory care practice at your practice site? Need assistance building the business case to expand pharmacist-led patient care services? PSW’s Ambulatory Care Advancement Coaching (ACAC) Workshop will provide you customized support and coaching! 

Examples of success from past ACAC participants include: 

  • Michelle Farrell, PharmD, BCACP: Obtained a collaborative practice agreement and implemented new tobacco cessation services at Boscobel Pharmacy
  • Steffen Matijevich, PharmD: Developing a pharmacist led pain management clinic at Fort HealthCare

When asked what they valued about ACAC, a past participant said, “Open sessions for discussion giving each participant the opportunity to ask questions and give answers. Business Plans and Project Development are not covered well in Pharmacy Schools, so this is much needed in clinical areas that are being pioneered by our Members.”

This program speeds patient care service project implementation and instills the leadership skillset necessary to propel practice advancement into the future. The workshop focuses on individualized coaching, peer-to-peer diffusion, and collaborative sharing, and didactic training will be leveraged.
