Addressing gun violence

The AMA supports common-sense measures to address gun violence. That’s why we’ve passed over two dozen policies supporting gun-violence restraining orders, tougher background checks, gun-free zones at schools, a ban on the sale of assault-type weapons and removal of firearms from high-risk individuals.

Extinguishing burnout and redesigning your practice

The AMA has assembled more than 40 award-winning tools to help physicians with everything from preventing burnout to creating a strong team culture to choosing the right payment model for your practice.

Practice Resources: EHR

Improving EHR usability

In combination with AMA advocacy and research, the AMA was successful in removing two of the most time consuming EHR measures—CPOE and CDS. Additionally, policymakers are now reshaping burdensome and complex federal program requirements around EHR use.
