EM Wellness Week: Commit to Something Great
“As emergency physicians, we care a lot about our patients. That’s why we chose this specialty. But all too often we are so busy caring for others, we forget to care about ourselves,” said ACEP President Jay A. Kaplan, MD, FACEP. “We want this week to be about action rather than just ideas. Everyone makes resolutions around the New Year; we hope that this week will help us and our colleagues make commitments to become more healthy, less burned out, and more resilient.”
Sometimes a commitment to act just takes a single click. Let us know what you plan to start doing today to improve your own wellness!
Created and spearheaded by the American College of Emergency Physicians, the 2016 Emergency Medicine Wellness Week™ is an opportunity all emergency physicians and their colleagues to take the time to self-renew while staying dedicated to the highest quality patient care. The inaugural event is slated for January 24-30, 2016.
