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 desires to make the determination of the appropriate level of supervision, education, training, and provision of services by non-physicians.   Do you want organized medicine making the determination of what is appropriate for you when they have stated that they do not apply standards equitably?

Excerpt:  AMA will convene a task force to develop principles to guide advocacy efforts aimed at addressing the appropriate level of supervision, education, training and provision of other invasive procedures by non-physicians including those employing radiologic imaging.

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

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 plans to "educate the general public and legislators" about the "differences between physician and non-physician providers."  They will advance their superiority over "non-physicians."

Who is educating the general public and legislators on your behalf?  Are you helping or just "riding along?"

ExcerptThe AMA will educate the general public and legislators to the differences between physician and non-physician providers of clinical services regarding their unique training, experience, broad based knowledge, ability and expertise, which impacts on their ability to provide high quality clinical care

Why Can’t We Just Forget About Medicine and Just Do Our Own Thing? No Growth

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:
