Leading The Way To Physician Health In California
CPPPH was formed in 2009 by organizations with a long-standing involvement with physician health, namely the California Society of Addiction Medicine, the California Psychiatric Association, the California Medical Association, and the California Hospital Association. Its activities are based in the understanding that supporting physician health contributes to public safety by providing services for physicians who face medical, substance use, psychological, behavioral and/or emotional issues that, if left unaddressed, could adversely impact their ability to deliver safe patient care. CPPPH goals and objectives are:
- To collaborate with physicians, physician groups and entities responsible for quality patient care in defining an optimum physician health program for California
- To provide consultation, education and assistance to those responsible for patient safety and physician heath
- To develop and disseminate guidelines and consensus documents
- To create a full-scale statewide program that coordinates all the services needed to address the spectrum of physician health issues
