The Big Ideas Soapbox at Family Medicine Forum (FMF) showcases concepts that could make a difference to clinical practice, faculty development, postgraduate or undergraduate education, patient care and outcomes, or health policy. This session offers a platform for innovators to share fresh ideas, innovative thinking, and fledgling developments with the potential to initiate change. Proposals are selected for presentation at FMF based on reviewers’ scores, and the innovators are invited to the Big Ideas Soapbox session to present and defend their ideas. Audience participation identifies the top proposals. These were the top ideas at FMF 2022.

  • Developing a sustainable health care mentorship program (top score)

  • Social prescribing to address social needs in family medicine

  • Complexity thinking should be a bedrock of family medicine
