High Value Care
ACP's High Value Care initiative aims to improve health, avoid harms, and eliminate wasteful practices.
The initiative addresses High Value Care broadly, offering learning resources for clinicians and medical educators, clinical guidelines, best practice advice, case studies and patient resources on a wide variety of related topics. Some learning opportunities even offer free CME and MOC.
Resources for Clinicians
The following free resources were created by ACP to help you implement High Value Care principles into your practice and focus on optimal diagnostic and treatment strategies, based upon considerations of value, effectiveness, and avoidance of overuse and misuse.
Resources for Medical Educators
These resources help medical educators teach the principles of High Value Care effectively and can also be used for faculty development.

Resources for Patients
These resources represent a collaboration between ACP and Consumer Reports and are designed to help patients understand the importance of seeking appropriate care in order to maximize value and live a healthy life.
