A Question of Ethics
Recently, after I had finished teaching a class on ethics, I  read a blog post on the AAAOM
website regarding "gainful employment." The published information made me reflect on what I had just discussed with the students — the acupuncturists' ethical responsibility to the patient, the profession and the public.

ACA, ICA and ACC Agree to "Jointly Support Legislation" for Veterans

VA and Medicare Task Forces Formed

By Editorial Staff

On December 2, 2000, the representatives of the American Chiropractic Association, the International Chiropractors Association, and the Association of Chiropractic Colleges met to discuss legislative efforts for 2001. At the meeting, the legislative committee members agreed to jointly support legislation to provide for chiropractic care for the nation's veterans, and to include language that would mirror the newly passed Department of Defense statutory language calling for services that "at a minimum would include neuromusculoskeletal conditions." A joint working group (task force) of the three associations will advance this effort.

The task force is calling upon those doctors of chiropractic and patients to identify individuals active in veterans' groups that could advance this legislation.

A task force on Medicare was also formed to review the various issues to be resolved by statute.

The ACA and ICA also reaffirmed their support of the ACC's paradigm and position papers on chiropractic.
