The existing position statement was adopted in May 1991. It was last updated in September 2005. The position cautions against self treatment and the treatment of loved ones, except for minor, acute illnesses or in emergency situations.
The Task Force met on Tuesday, June 28 to discuss the position statement and suggest changes to its contents, as many have found it to be vague. The NCMS was represented at this meeting. The North Carolina Medical Board is now seeking feedback from our members regarding this statement with hopes of bringing additional clarity to the policy.
