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:  Organized medicine states that they will oppose inappropriate scope of practice expansion of non-physician providers.  In their eyes any expansion of a non-physician provider is inappropriate.  

Will you work to keep what chiropractic pioneers earned for you or will you allow organized medicine to take it away from you and prevent you from growth.  

Where there is no growth there is no life.  Environments devoid of change are devoid of life.

ExcerptAMA [will] oppose legislative mandates on health care plans that may lead to inappropriate scope of practice expansion of non-physician providers.

Executive Director’s Message

Are your continuing education hours due in the coming months? Good news … the Texas Chiropractic Association has plenty of outstanding options for you. 
 
TCA recently held two events – the 2016 Mid-Winter Conference in Lubbock and a one-day seminar, Concussion from the Pros to the Joes, in Austin. The feedback from both events was overwhelmingly positive. 
 
At Mid-Winter, attendees were treated to phenomenal sessions from chiropractic radiology guru Terry Yochum, DC, DACBR, Fellow – ACCR, and renowned chiropractic coach Charles Ward, DC – both legends in our profession – and both doctors and chiropractic assistants were wowed by Lori W. Allen of Profitable Practice Strategies, who showed them how to transform their front desk for maximum efficiency and profitability.
 
Just when you think it couldn’t get any better, sports chiropractor Kelly Ryder, DC, CCSP, delivered a comprehensive, hands-on concussion workshop last weekend that simply blew the audience away.
 
Fortunately, you’ll have other opportunities to hear many of these instructors – and other leading experts – at several TCA events this spring.
 
Please put these dates on your calendar:

Why Can’t We Just Forget About Medicine and Just Do Our Own Thing? Imposed Will

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:  While it is good that the AMA agrees with TCA that "scope of practice is determined by training, experience, and demonstrated competence", it is "not good" that "AMA will continue to work to draft model legislation that deals with non-physician independent practitioners’ scope of practice."  When someone publicly states that they will always be superior to you, you will always be inferior to them, and that they want to work to make sure that you stay that way, justice is not served. 

What will you do to counteract their work?

Excerpt:  AMA will continue to work to draft model legislation that deals with non-physician independent practitioners’ scope of practice, reflecting the goal of ensuring that non-physician scope of practice is determined by training, experience, and demonstrated competence

Mid-Winter Conference 2016

For the second year the Texas Chiropractic Association's Mid-Winter Conference was held at the Overton Hotel & Conference Center, a premier venue located in the heart of Lubbock.   Doctors from around the state converged to enhance their knowledge, mingle with their peers and ensure that required TBCE continuing education hours were achieved.  This year's Mid-Winter conference was one of the most well attended in recent memory and was a marked success.  You will certainly want to make plans now to attend the Chiro Texpo '16 in Arlington June 10-12!

The Mid-Winter event kicked off Friday at noon with keynote speaker Charles Ward, DC challenging the doctors asking the question "are you thinking big enough?"  Patrick J. McNeil, DC resumed the afternoon conferences with a presentation on advanced spinal correction and strengthening techniques, and Dr. Ward capped Friday's lectures presenting communicating chiropractic principles to improve clinical outcomes through increased compliance.  A buffet and reception in the exhibitors hall following Friday's conference allowed for a time of relaxed sharing and visiting with colleagues and vendors.
