Physician Health First | 9am - 12pm

The subject of burnout is a critical concern to the AAFP because family physicians suffer from significantly higher rates of burnout than physicians in most other specialties. With AAFP Physician Health First, the first-ever comprehensive initiative devoted to improving the well-being and professional satisfaction of family physicians, the AAFP is working at every level to help put physician well-being first, so physicians can stay passionate about their purpose: providing quality patient care.

As part of ongoing efforts to improve family physician well-being, we are pleased to have the AAFP join us in Indianapolis for a Physician Health First presentation. In this presentation, Clif Knight, MD, AAFP Senior Vice President for Education and a past president of the IAFP, will explain what the AAFP is doing to battle physician burnout and, in a workshop setting, provide solutions for improved professional satisfaction and better patient care within a broken system.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain what the AAFP is doing to improve family physician well-being
  • Determine strategies to address well-being and burnout issues in each level of the family physician ecosystem
  • Develop a personalized plan to improve personal and professional satisfaction using AAFP-provided and other available resources
