ACP Policy News
New policy paper emphasizes the need for a patient-centered, physician-led care team to improve patient safety and outcomes.
Advocacy in Action
New initiative provides resources for physicians to have frank discussions with patients regarding firearm storage and safety.
ACP says governmental interference in evidence-based medicine is ‘extremely problematic’.
ACP recognizes May as National Mental Health Awareness Month and recommends that members check out the I.M. Emotional Support Hub for resources on well-being and professional fulfillment.
The hub includes free and low-cost counseling plus multimedia resources to protect clinician well-being. This year, three new 10–15-minute videos were added to the Mini but Mighty Skills for Well-Being video series, including bonus multimedia resources to support you and your team's well-being journey from where you are.
The new ‘Mini but Mighty Skills for Well-Being’ topics include:
- Peer Coaching to Support Individuals and Organizations (Support a Colleague in Need)
- Using Stories to Explore Identity and Enhance Well-being (Narrative Medicine)
- Draft Your Personal Mission Statement to Enhance Professional Fulfillment
