Join Our First National Grand Round Presentation
Getting into Good Trouble: Why Advocacy Should Be a Core Competency
Wednesday, September 16, 2020
7-8 pm (CT)
AAPM&R President Michelle S. Gittler, MD, FAAPMR, will lead our first National Grand Round presentation, “Getting into Good Trouble: Why Advocacy Should Be a Core Competency,” on Wednesday, September 16 from 7-8 pm (CT).
Dr. Gittler will discuss the role of the physician in advocacy. She will talk about how to differentiate advocacy and agency from activism, identify the role of the physician in patient advocacy, and talk about opportunities for advocacy locally, regionally and nationally. She will focus on the historical and current role of the physician in advocacy and identify not only what is already being done, but, what physicians can do better. Physicians have a responsibility to be health advocates and must act to positively influence public health and policy. Dr. Gittler will talk about how it is time for advocacy training to become more prominent in training future physicians, as the skills developed will enhance students' comprehension of how to deliver optimal patient care at the population level.
We hope you will join us for these thought-provoking sessions, as we advance the specialty together.
