PHE-004: Medical Supervision of Allied Health Care Professionals

Medical Supervision of Allied Health Care Professionals: The Wisconsin Medical Society will vigorously monitor any efforts by allied health care professionals to seek legislation or administrative rule change that would allow a practice independent of physician supervision, especially in the area of independent drug prescription authority. Organized medicine’s intention in this matter is to ensure that high quality medical care be delivered and that the safety and well being of the patient always be paramount. (HOD, 0411)*
