ACEP is the only EM organization:

You fight for your patients. ACEP fights for you.


Defending you from scope creep

  • ACEP Chapters were directly involved in five major wins during the 2021-22 legislative session. Misguided bills were thwarted in Kentucky, Wisconsin, South Dakota, Louisiana and Colorado, with support from a comprehensive advocacy toolkit.
  • ACEP launched an aggressive public education campaign that spelled out a clear message to the press, federal policymakers, and patients: There is no substitute for an emergency physician in emergency departments. 
  • Four resolutions were passed by the 2022 ACEP Council to enhance oversight of non-physicians on the care team.

Protecting you from bad actors


Pushing for boarding solutions

  • ACEP took your passionate stories to the White House, and influenced 34 other health care and patient advocacy groups to sign on to our letter.
  • ACEP launched a powerful digital storybook featuring 150 of our members' boarding stories, highlighted in 550 publications nationwide.
  • Reached out to governors and provided chapters a toolkit to address this crisis at the local level.
