Promote and Sustain
AMHO helps to promote and sustain the support services offered by care providers by facilitating networks of peers and providers who can give advice, contribute ideas and share best practices.
Our Communities of Practice peer networks will be launching on the new AMHO Member Portal – a resource for members coming in early 2024. Watch for more information and instructions on how to join in our upcoming Member Bulletins.
Communities of PracticeTo help ensure we offer support where and when it is needed most, AMHO maintains Communities of Practice (CoP), where members can share resources and advice, ask questions, and learn about new ideas. Our current CoPs include:
