Revitalizing Healthcare: Enhancing Physician Resilience and Well-Being for Improved Patient Care

 

This year, our CME program addresses the pressing need for physician well-being in today’s challenging healthcare landscape. Our mission is to equip physicians with tools to promote wellness and resiliency among themselves and their patients.

The AAFP has reviewed “Revitalizing Healthcare: Enhancing Physician Resilience and Well-Being for Improved Patient Care” and deemed it acceptable for up to 8.00 Live AAFP Prescribed credits. Term of Approval is from 07/05/2024 to 07/06/2024. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. 

AAFP Prescribed credit is accepted by the American Medical Association as equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1 credit(s)™ toward the AMA Physician’s Recognition Award. When applying for the AMA PRA, Prescribed credit earned must be reported as Prescribed, not as Category 1.
