For those who promote “Let’s forget organized medicine and just do our own thing,” what will you do about those who espouse the following policies?

Comment:  "AMA supports continued efforts to inform the public and the profession of the potential problems and risks" of assigning therapeutic agents to "non-physicians."

When they inform others that doctors of chiropractic cannot treat subluxation1  what will you do? What did you do when they did it the first, second and third times?

Excerpt:  AMA supports continued efforts to inform the public and the profession of the potential problems and risks should a physician’s choice of therapeutic agents be delegated to non-physicians; and asks that state medical associations provide scientific and economic reasons in support of this position to state legislatures considering enactment of laws on substitution of drug products other than those prescribed or agreed upon by an attending physician.

Support chiropractic though membership in state AND national chiropractic associations!  

This is a weekly series excerpting from the American Medical Associations own published policies regarding “non-physicians”.  It will take nearly a year to complete.


1  From TMA v TBCE lawsuit No. 1:  “'Subluxation complex' is neither a medical term nor a known pathological entity. It is a chiropractic theory unsupported by any evidence-based research. ... TBCE cannot define the term to include things that exceed the scope of practice set forth in the statute ... The definition of subluxation complex exceeds and is in conflict with the Chiropractic Act and is, therefore, invalid and void."
