New Position Statement on the Term "Provider"

AAEM released a new position statement on the use of the term "provider."

The American Academy of Emergency Medicine (AAEM) recognizes and advocates for the patient’s right to know the credentials of all clinicians being trusted with his/her well-being. Studies repeatedly show that patients in the US healthcare system want to know these credentials and are confused when credentials are not clearly presented.1 More importantly, AAEM believes that credential transparency is a moral obligation.
