In October 2019, ACEP launched a new external website, to provide the latest news, advocacy, and medical emergency tips. This website enhances the College’s ability to shape the perception of emergency physicians among the press, public, and policymakers. A dynamic site featuring some of the most pressing issues to emergency physicians, Emergency Physicians has been instrumental in conveying ACEP’s public statements and federal advocacy efforts around surprise billing.

This new website is the main interface with the public for our new “Until Help Arrives” citizen first responder training program. It makes it easy to sign up for training and prominently highlights the results of a recent public opinion poll on bystanders’ confidence in assisting with a variety of medical emergencies and the public desirability for a program like this.
The website will also share firsthand stories from ACEP members about the prevalence and impacts of ED violence through ACEP’s and the Emergency Nurses Association’s “No Silence on ED Violence” campaign (turn to page 6 to read more about the campaign).
