ASCP has a series of new advisory focus groups representing different industry sectors. These groups are a way for members to network and share ideas virtually and in person at ASCP national meetings.

Home and Community-Based Consultant Pharmacists

This group (formerly titled "Private Practice Network/PPN") is established to enable the mutual sharing of experience and expertise among senior care pharmacists in the home and community-based settings. The goals of this group are to:

  • Facilitate shared learning and networking; to explore new business and clinical opportunities.
  • Support the progressive movement of home and community based pharmacist initiatives.
  • Advocate for the unique educational and marketing needs of the group.
  • Provide guidance to ASCP leadership regarding business and clinical educational programming ideas.

This Focus Group is open to ASCP member pharmacists who have senior-focused clinical practices based outside of the nursing home setting. To join this group, please email

This Focus Group will meet in person on November 3 from 9:30am – 1:00pm at ASCP’s 2017 Annual Meeting & Exhibition. To attend the Focus Group meeting, be sure to register for the full conference and add the free Focus Group Meeting to your ticket. Space is limited.

LTC Consultant Operators

This is a group of about 15-20 consultant pharmacists who own and operate an independent LTC clinical and consultant practice. These practitioners contract directly with nursing home operators to do monthly drug regimen reviews and in many cases medication reviews at time of admission and discharge to home. This group is by invitation only. If you would like an invitation to join, please contact

Nursing Home Pharmacy Executives

This focus group includes pharmacist executives responsible for pharmacy services and clinical programs for regional and national nursing home providers. This group is by invitation only. If you would like an invitation to join, please contact

LTC Pharmacy Operators

This is a group of pharmacy managers, owners and executives. It’s a great networking opportunity for pharmacy executives to discuss operational challenges and opportunities, for example, working with EHR companies. This group is by invitation only. If you would like an invitation to join, please contact

ASCP's Grassroots Network is a members-only communications platform designed to engage in ASCP's advocacy initiatives and seek opportunities to meet with Congressional members, their staff, and important stakeholders on critical issues.
