Emergency medicine is a highly rewarding yet challenging career, with research and member feedback outlining the impact that the constant exposure to patient ill health and injury, and heavy physical and emotional demands can have on physician wellbeing. ACEM supports the health and wellbeing of its members and trainees, and the ACEM Wellbeing Award is part of a range of initiatives aimed at empowering ACEM members and trainees to lead culture change in emergency departments, hospitals and the profession as a whole.

Established in 2018, this annual award celebrates the initiative(s) of an individual member, group of members or an emergency department that have resulted in the enhancement of wellbeing for their emergency department colleagues. The award recognises those who are proactively putting in place a well thought through strategy to encourage and promote the physical and mental health of emergency department staff.
