8-9:30 a.m.

Protecting our Healers

While not a new occurrence, the reported rise in intimidation, threats and attacks toward physicians and others in the medical field has been increasing over the last decade—and has become even more prevalent during the COVID-19 pandemic. A recent study published in JAMA posed the questions: how frequently do physicians experience mistreatment and discrimination by patients, their families, and visitors; how does this vary by physician characteristics; and more. At this program jointly hosted by three sections, hear from one of the study's authors and from three section physician leaders who will discuss how violence against physicians is being felt and addressed in a variety of practice settings including health care systems, hospital medical staffs and private practices.

10-10:30 a.m.

Criminalization of Pregnancy

This program discusses the United States’ long-standing history of criminalizing pregnancy and the disproportionate repercussions for low-income and Black women.

Speaker

  • Heather Smith, MD

10:10-11:40 a.m.

Designing the Future of Sustainable Value-Based Payment Models: A Working Session

One of the IPPS's top policy priorities is advancing the adoption of value-based care or alternative payment models (APMs). The AMA has partnered with key stakeholder organizations to advance the adoption of APMs. This IPPS program is a working session facilitated by AMA's Carol Vargo, director, Physician Practice Sustainability, Payment & Quality. IPPS members working in breakout groups will workshop questions such as: "What does success in APMs look like from IPPS members' perspective? What are key principles around aligned data sharing and payment models? What are best practices in your organization?" The discussions will help inform the AMA input in the stakeholder coalition. The session is also an opportunity to share, learn from and network with your IPPS colleagues.

Facilitated by:

  • Carol Vargo, AMA, director, Physician Practice Sustainability, Payment & Quality

10:20-11:20 a.m.

Precision Education: Right Training, Right Physician, Right Time

Facilitated by:

  • Sanjay Desai, MD, chief academic officer, AMA

11 a.m.-noon

PPPS: Physicians at the Intersection of Mistreatment and Burnout: Current State and Possible Solutions

Burnout and professional dissatisfaction are becoming prevalent among physicians, particularly in the wake of COVID-19. However, researchers have recently begun to explore the impact that physician mistreatment has had on burnout and professional satisfaction. According to a recent article published in JAMA, burnout is an occupational phenomenon characterized by emotional exhaustion, cynicism related to one’s work, and reduced sense of professional efficacy that is prevalent among physicians. This program will explore the current state of physician mistreatment and professional satisfaction, and offer solutions for physicians to employ in a variety of practice settings. Additionally, hear from the experts within the AMA’s Professional Satisfaction and Practice Sustainability business unit as they share some of the tools and resources that were developed to enhance physician satisfaction.

11:15 a.m.- 12:45 p.m.

  • Maisha Draves, MD
  • Courtland Keteyian, MD

Noon-1:15 p.m.

C. Clayton Griffin, MD, Memorial YPS Assembly Luncheon: The Journey of Your Vote: The Impact of Midterm Elections

Historically, midterm elections have been won by the party that does not occupy the White House. This change in Congress can put a significant damper on the policy aspirations of the Executive Branch, including changes to the health policy goals of an administration. It can be challenging for any voter to understand how their votes for congressional candidates at the midterm will materially affect policies that the voter cares about. This session will delve into what we can learn from previous midterm elections and the impact those elections had on policy and how we can apply those lessons moving forward.

Speaker

  • Todd Askew, AMA, senior vice president, Advocacy, Executive and Board Offices

Addressing Misinformation and Misconceptions: Caring for Patients with Persistent Symptoms Attributed to Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is the most common vector-borne disease in the United States and its incidence is expected to increase with climate change. Most cases of Lyme disease can be cured with a course of oral antibiotics. However, some patients have concerns about persistent symptoms they attribute to Lyme disease. Physicians often find it challenging to treat these patients due to the lack of evidence-based guidance and growing patient exposure to misinformation. The AMA, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, collected expert opinions from physicians from a range of specialties (primary care, neurology, rheumatology, psychiatry, infectious diseases) through in-depth interviews and focus groups to inform guidance on evaluating and treating patients with concerns for persistent symptoms attributed to Lyme disease. In this interactive session, participants will learn about the initial findings of this study. Participants will be able to describe sources and types of misinformation that patients might be exposed to and explain best practices in responding to patient concerns. Participants will take part in breakout discussions to learn from colleagues and share their own experiences managing patients, addressing misinformation and evaluating resources that could support physicians in treating these patients.

Moderator

  • Frederick Chen, MD, MPH, AMA, group vice president, chief health & science officer

Speakers

  • Arnold Chen, MD, Mathematica;
  • Paul Mead, MD, CDC

Find out how the AMA and the other plaintiffs in the AATCLC case compelled the federal government to take the first steps banning menthol cigarettes. Learn about the Montana Medical Association's fight to overturn a law that prohibits physicians and hospitals from requiring their employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or any other disease (including diseases not yet manifested to medical science).

2:30- 3:30 p.m.

Council on Ethical and Judicial Affairs Open Forum: Finding Opportunities to Promote Equity in Health Care

The AMA Code of Medical Ethics speaks to matters of equity in health care in guidance on physicians' ethical responsibilities to promote access to care, to avoid discriminating against or exploiting patients and research participants, to be prudent stewards of health care resources, and to allocate limited resources fairly, among others.

This 90-minute live educational activity will focus on identifying barriers to equity and explore concrete practices, tools and resources that can help physicians translate the aspirational guidance of the Code into practical action that promotes equity in their interactions with patients and colleagues and across the health care institutions with which they are affiliated.

2:30- 3:30 p.m.

Obesity Caucus

Our AMA has recognized obesity as a disease, researched the state of obesity education in training programs, supported access to evidence-based treatments, opposed barriers to care, and passed policy aimed at reducing bias and stigma towards those affected by obesity. Nevertheless, obesity levels continue to climb, insurance coverage for these evidence-based treatments remains sparse, and education remains spotty. Further, those living with obesity have been disproportionately affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic, experiencing a higher rate of ICU admission, mechanical ventilation, and death.

The AMA played a key role in helping Americans stop smoking, and the AMA is currently fighting to reduce deaths caused by the opioid epidemic. Similarly, by working together, our AMA can make a difference in reducing morbidity and mortality from obesity, which is now estimated to affect over 40% of all Americans.

2:30- 3:30 p.m.

Workplace Violence in Healthcare Settings

Details are being finalized. Please check the Speakers’ Letter (PDF) for updated information.
