Well, I know you guys are out there somewhere but only a few signatures are on the petition to oppose Maintenance of Licensure (MOL, http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/iowa-medical-society-house-of-delegates/), but by now most doctors in Iowa know that the Iowa Medical Society House of Delegates adopted the resolution to oppose MOL in Iowa.
Although the Iowa Board of Medicine and I were unable to discuss opposition to MOL at the public portion of their meeting on April 25, 2013 by telephone conference, they are still keeping the lines of communication open. They accepted my updated handout and I sent them a link to my latest blog post with YouTube video, see link https://thepracticalpsychosomaticist.com/2013/04/29/dr-amoss-dirty-dozen-on-mol-in-iowa/.
There are probably many reasons why people don’t sign petitions, especially electronically mediated ones, among them the fear they’ll be spammed. That’s understandable.
More important than signatures are the actions of physicians who believe that the spirit of continuous quality improvement in providing safe, humanistic, excellent clinical care ought to be a part of the culture of medicine, practiced every day in every encounter with patients and families.
