Philadelphia, January 4, 2018 – The American College of Physicians (ACP) has launched a Physician Well-being & Professional Satisfaction initiative with the goal of creating a culture of wellness, improving practice efficiencies, enhancing individual physician well-being, and reducing administrative burdens.
“It is critical to address the many factors that can lead to professional dissatisfaction, burnout, depression, and suicide among physicians,” said ACP’s Board of Regents Chair Susan Thompson Hingle, MD, MACP, who also wrote a column about the initiative in the January issue of ACP Internist. “The American College of Physicians is committed to helping internists experience greater fulfillment by identifying, promoting, and disseminating approaches to improve the practice environment so that they can better serve their patients.”
A key component of ACP’s initiative is establishing and training a dedicated team of ACP Well-being Champions to support their ACP chapter members, practices, and organizations in combatting burnout. ACP also will offer online resources and educational courses at its national and regional meetings.
Relevant courses being offered at ACP’s upcoming Internal Medicine Meeting 2018 in April include:
Internal Medicine Meeting 2018 also will feature a Relaxation Station in the Exhibit Hall.

ACP’s Patients Before Paperwork effort addresses systems challenges and to seeks to reinvigorate the patient-physician relationship by reducing excessive administrative burdens. ACP strategies for this effort are to:
ACP’s “Putting Patients First by Reducing Administrative Tasks in Healthcare” paper published in Annals of Internal Medicine in March 2017 presents a framework to analyze administrative tasks and determine whether they may need to be challenged, revised, or eliminated entirely.
