Past conference resources
2021 conference materials
With its timely theme of “Achieving the Quadruple Aim: Resilient systems in times of crisis,” last year’s American Conference on Physician Health (ACPH) was a great success. The sustained interest and robust attendance for the event further underscores the continued need for a conference focused on how to promote physician well-being. The conference showcased abstracts with research findings that identified solutions organizations can implement, and best practices used to achieve joy in medicine. The 2021 conference provided an engaging forum to share innovative methods and discuss tangible strategies and tools so that structuring organizations (i.e., hospitals, health systems, practices, clinics) can begin to contribute to —rather than detract from —physician wellness. The 2021 conference presentations are available below. Learn more about the conference in the ACPH 2021 post conference report.
2019 conference materials
The ACPH 2019 conference theme – “Activating health system change to promote physician well-being” focused on how to structure organizations (i.e., hospitals, health systems, practices, clinics) to contribute to, rather than detract from, physician well-being. The conference showcased research and initiatives on the infrastructure of health care systems and what organizations can do to help combat burnout and promote well-being. It provided a forum for practitioners and researchers to present recent findings, innovative methods and support systems, as well as educational programs in the following areas of physician health: consequence, driver, innovation/initiative, next generation and women in medicine.
