Legislative Update: Taking the Board of Medical Examiners Forward

The Board voted on and approved final legislative language based on conceptual legislative ideas approved at its September 21 - 24 and November 17 - 19 Board meetings. This language has been forwarded to the Arizona Legislative Council where it will be turned into an Intro Set and ultimately introduced during the Year 2000 Legislative Session.

The statutory amendments will advance the Board's mission through improving unprofessional conduct reporting by healthcare providers, giving the Board new authority to deny applications if patient safety is compromised, preventing dangerous prescribing practices and instituting other enforcement improvements.
