The Voice of Michigan Pathology

 

Dear MSP Members,
Recently, the Senate Committee on Reforms, Restructuring & Reinventing recently passed SB 2, introduced by Committee Chair Sen. Mark Jansen (R-Grand Rapids). This bill aims to change the Public Health Code to allow APRNs to perform certain medical/surgical procedures and interpretation of laboratory tests, as well as prescribing duties, without any physician supervision or oversight.

Legislators need to know that the best person to lead the health care team is the person with the most extensive education and training who can ensure the highest quality of care and safety for patients—the physician. It’s time to tell them that scope of practice expansions should come through education and training and NOT through legislative means (“Educate, Don’t Legislate”). The bill moved to the Senate floor, and unless senators hear from more physicians—and other friends of medicine—there’s a good chance they will pass it. Urge your colleagues, spouses, office managers, and others to contact senators, too!
