“Chiropractors everywhere would advance their patients’ and profession’s interests by using the Forbes article and PCA’s release (see update to the right) and to send a more personalized letter to the editors of their local newspapers, television/ radio stations and other media outlets. I encourage every DC in Pennsylvania to do exactly that- seize this important moment in time to advocate for your profession, your communities and your patients!” - PCA President Dr. Raymond J. Benedetto, DC
We can solve the dilemma of prescribed opioid addictions with a conservative care first (CCF) approach to health care. The solution lies in PREVENTING opioid addiction from becoming a problem in the first place with safe, effective and cost-saving care for the common ailments for which these medications are erroneously prescribed in the first place.
The PA State Board of Chiropractic has officially passed new regulations regarding distance learning and your CE re-licensure requirements. PCA supported this effort to appropriately limit online learning for a “hands-on” profession.
This regulation takes effect in the 2016-2018 re-licensure cycle, NOT the 2014-2016 cycle.
