You can view the proposed changes to the position statement on page 8 of the Policy Committee agenda, by clicking here. However, after much discussion the committee agreed to table this item and re-write the proposed position statement for a second time. A new draft will be presented at the November 2011 committee meeting.
In the meantime the committee agreed to move forward in filing a rule prohibiting licensees from prescribing controlled substances for their own use or for the use of the licensee’s spouse, parent, child, sibling, parent-in-law, son or daughter-in-law, brother or sister-in-law, step-parent, step-child, step-sibling, or any other person living in the same residence as the licensee, or anyone with whom the physician is having a sexual relationship.
As this proposal is filed and moved through the rule-making process, there will be additional opportunity for public comment – NCMS staff will notify members in the Bulletin when such opportunities become available.
