ACUPUNCTURISTS AND ORIENTAL MEDICAL DOCTORS (OMD) OPPOSE SOPP AND RESOLUTION 814

"
Health Care Professionals Urge Cooperative Patient care;
Oppose SOPP and AMA Resolution 814
(Excerpt from the CPR Joint Statement)
In the past decade, the AMA has adopted at least seven resolutions concerning one or more of the undersigned professions that, if implemented, would restrict our practice and impede patient access to care. The resolutions have been widely ignored. The SOPP appears to signal a renewed effort, buttressed by substantial expenditures, to restrict the practice of healthcare professionals who are not physicians. It is time for the AMA and other SOPP member organizations to recognize that our members have long demonstrated that they provide high quality, safe care and do not warrant the singular and extraordinary scrutiny that the SOPP and Resolution 814 seem to contemplate. There is more than enough room – and need – for all of us. We need to work together, all of us contributing our respective expertise. This occurs every day in clinical settings, with the many different types of healthcare professionals who we represent cooperating with primary care physicians and various physician specialists. Rather than endlessly attempting to keep healthcare professionals who are not physicians from practicing to their full capability, it's time for SOPP member organizations to join us in advancing a more productive agenda. The winners will be patients."
