The 2022 FSPHP Annual Education Conference will focus on two themesInclusivity and Destigmatization for healthcare professionals as we deliver Physician Health Program (PHP) best practices. We are seeking abstracts and presentations that focus on overcoming these barriers, while addressing the evaluation, treatment, and monitoring of illness and conditions relevant to our work. This includes the stigma that accompanies mental health and substance use disorder in healthcare professionals.

Conference Objectives:

  1. Review existing evidence-informed strategies that promote cultures of wellness through the assessment and mitigation of mental health stigma, bias, and discrimination in the healthcare ecosystem.
  2. Examine policies or practices of PHPs, evaluation and treatment providers, employers, educators, and regulatory or credentialing entities that encourage (or impede) early identification, access to resources, and effective interventions for healthcare professionals at risk of burnout, mental illness, and/or substance use disorders.
  3. Describe education and advocacy efforts that use destigmatization strategies to promote health professional wellness, access to support, and effective treatment.
  4. Identify best practices for identifying, referring, and monitoring substance use and mental health disorders in healthcare professionals. Such practices include mitigating stigma, internal/implicit bias, and discrimination.
