Mary H. Parsons, MD, FACP, ACP Governor
I am honored and excited to be sending you this summer update as the Governor of the Utah Chapter of ACP. Dr. Robert Pendleton left very large shoes to fill but also a fabulous chapter director, Brittany Patterson, and a well-functioning leadership council. I am amazed at the energy and passion that everyone on the council brings to the local ACP. I hope you enjoy the links below on some of the Hot Topics being addressed nationally by ACP. I also look forward to bringing your feedback and voice to the fall Board of Governors meeting in Montreal October 5-7, 2017. I hope you have had a chance to read and respond to the 19 resolutions that will be considered at that meeting.
Please save the date for our chapter annual meeting March 2 – 3, 2018. The annual meeting committee leadership - Drs. Karli Edholm (chair), Nate Allred, and Erik Riessen - have been hard at work choosing speakers and arranging topics for the meeting. We hope that as many of you as possible will attend.
We are striving to be your local professional home and add value to your practices and wellness to your lives in partnership with the national organization. We have also established a Health and Public Policy committee under the leadership of Dr. Michael Galindo and are looking forward to good representation from our chapter at the UMA meeting in September.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and I look forward to updating you on the results of the fall meeting. Also, it is not too early to start thinking about the ACP annual meeting in New Orleans April 19-21, 2018!

Five abstracts will be selected for presentation at the ACP Utah Chapter Clinical Vignette Competition on September 20, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. All 5 who present at the Vignette Banquet will receive a CASH PRIZE; the grand prize winner will receive travel expenses to present at IM 2018 in New Orleans, LA.

Do you have a colleague who always goes out of the way to put his patients at ease or mentor new physicians? Maybe she solved a tricky throughput problem or led a safety initiative. If so, we'd would like to hear about it.
We're seeking candidates for our annual chapter awards ceremony to be held at our annual meeting March 2, 2018. The ceremony will recognize physicians who made notable contributions to the field in 2017, whether through exceptional clinical skills, patient safety, improved workflow, leadership, community involvement, quality improvement, or something else.
To suggest a colleague, please fill out our nominations form by December 30, 2017. The more nominations, the better! Thanks for your participation.
ACP's Annual Report of the Executive Vice President (EVP) for 2016-2017 is available online. The report serves as a review of ACP's activities, accomplishments, guidelines, clinical standards, public policy, practice support, and more over a 12-month period.
In all that we do, ACP is striving to change burdensome systems and requirements so our members can refocus on the core elements of why we chose internal medicine as a profession: caring for patients and developing relationships. From the development of educational resources, to partnering with like-minded stakeholders to help strengthen our positions on reducing regulatory tasks that don't add value, we are committed to doing whatever we can to help physicians get back to the bedside, and reinstill the sense of community in healthcare and value the power of human connection. Relationships matter, and no relationship matters more than the one between patients and physicians. See the report here.
The national Council of Early Career Physicians (CECP) is interested in networking with early career physician leaders at the ACP Chapter level to share information and ideas to foster an environment of learning and development. Whether you have an established Chapter Council of Early Career Physicians, are in the process of developing one, or would like assistance getting one started, the national CECP is available as a resource to help answer questions, point you towards implementation ideas, and discuss any issues that may arise. To facilitate this exchange of ideas, please join the Early Career Physician Forum here.
The Board of Regents has approved a new ACP policy, “Position Statement on Regulation of Credentialing and Licensing, “ developed by the Health & Public Policy Committee with input from the Education & Publication Committee and the Medical Practice & Quality Committee. This issue is being debated at the legislative level in many states. ACP hopes this policy will help provide policy direction for ACP chapters as it outlines the issues that chapters should consider in deciding what stance they should take on such bills. The new policy is a complement to ACP's existing broad principles of professional accountability. ACP chapters may be contacted by the news media about this issue. Please let ACP Public Relations staff, Laura Baldwin, know if you are contacted by the news media about this, and/or if you would like assistance in handling reporter inquiries. Read the full position statement here.
