Ander beleid t.a.v. LLMD's

Berichtdoor RobertF » Do 30 Jun 2005 17:22

Hallo allemaal,
In Amerika zijn verschillende artsen aangeklaagd in het verleden omdat zij lange AB behandelingen gaven. Verzekeringsmaatschappijen diende een aanklacht in bij het medisch tuchtcollege en beschuldigde deze artsen van kwakzalverij omdat ze langer behandelde als de ISDA richtlijnen.
Het medisch tuchtcollege is verplicht zo'n aanklacht te vervolgen en vele artsen werden hangende het onderzoek het uit oefenen van het beroep ontzegd.
Er is nu een memo rondgestuurd door het tuchtcollege OPMC hierin staat dat artsen niet langer vervolgd worden op basis van dat ze langer antibiotica geven als in de richtlijnen, indien de patient nog ziek is.
Dit is een doorbraak, omdat nu artsen zonder angst langere AB behandeling bij Lyme kunnen voorschrijven.
groet RobertF



Victory in New York!

Dear Friends,

The following memorandum was issued June 15, 2005 by OPMC Director Dennis
Graziano to every staff member of the Office of Professional Medical Conduct
(OPMC) and copied to all the members of the Board for Professional Medical Conduct
and its chief counsel:

"Subject: Investigation of Practitioners Utilizing Treatment Modalities That
Are Not Universally Accepted by the Medical Profession.

"This memorandum is intended to memorialize and endorse the principles that
are currently in place in the Office of Professional Medical Conduct regarding
the investigation of physicians, physician assistants and specialist
assistants who use treatment modalities that are not universally accepted by the
medical profession, such as the varying modalities used in the treatment of Lyme
disease and other tick-borne
diseases.

"As you know, Article 131 of the Education Law defines the practice of
medicine. Paragraph (e) of subdivision four of §6527 of the Education Law provides
that Article 131 'shall not be construed to affect or prevent...[a]
physician's use of whatever medical care, conventional or non-conventional, which
effectively treats human disease, pain, injury, deformity or physical condition.'
Under current law, therefore, it is clear that so long as a treatment modality
effectively treats human disease, pain, injury, deformity or physical
condition, the recommendation or provision of that modality does not, by itself,
constitute professional misconduct. Consequently, it is contrary to the
policy and practice of the Office of Professional Medical Conduct to identify,
investigate or charge a physician, physician’s assistant or specialist assistant
based solely on that practitioner’s recommendation or provision of such
treatment modality.

“Please note that this prohibition does not exonerate such practitioners from
otherwise applicable professional requirements.”

According to New York doctor Joseph Burrascano, “This memorandum means that
the pressure is now off of Lyme-treating physicians in New York, and it is
certainly a reward for all the hard work and efforts of the Lyme community.”

The Lyme Disease Association and Voices of Lyme/NY Lyme are pleased to
announce that the New York State OPMC has issued this memorandum on investigating
doctors who are treating Lyme disease and other tick-borne diseases. The
extensive public grass roots work of the Lyme community enabled a number of private
meetings to be held in Albany, culminating with a January 2005 meeting with
the Governor’s counsel. This meeting set in motion the issuing of the memorandum.

We are grateful to New York Assembly members Adam Bradley, Nettie Mayersohn,
and Joel Miller for their constant support of the Lyme community including
their initiation of and attendance at this January 2005 meeting with the Governor’
s office, the Lyme Disease Association and Dr. Brian Fallon, Columbia
University College of
Physicians & Surgeons.

We thank Governor Pataki who responded to the thousands of communications he
received from Lyme patients seeking protection for their medical care. He was
instrumental in the work leading to the issuance of this memo.

Most importantly, we thank the Lyme community for its continued dedication to
addressing the conditions in NY which had threatened the medical care of Lyme
disease patients. Without your continued grass roots efforts over the past
four years through phone calls, faxes, emails, letters, and testimonies, this
memorandum would not have been issued.

We also thank our physicians who have freely provided their time and
expertise in this process, particularly ILADS and Dr. Brian Fallon. Jill Auerbach
deserves special recognition for her role in the meeting process.

Thanks to Monica Miller of FAIM, who, working independently, consistently
provided invaluable direction to the Lyme disease effort. Also thanks to Richard
Gottfried, Chair, Assembly Health Committee, who called the Assembly hearings
on Lyme disease and has been fighting very hard along with us for the OPMC
reform bill.

YOUR CONTINUED EFFORTS AND SUPPORT CAUSED THIS TO HAPPEN!
THANK YOU ALL!

Dat is i.i.g. goed nieuws voor chronische lymepatienten in Amerika.

De artsen die daar voor langere tijd AB gaan voorschrijven aan zieke lymepatienten; zoiets zou in nederland ook moeten.

Ik heb sowieso nooit begrepen waarom je huisarts dit niet kan doen hier in nederland, dat is toch niet zo moeilijk?
Maar mijn huisarts was gewoon bang om meer AB voor te schrijven terwijl hij zag dat ik langzaam maar zeker achteruit ging.
