Michigan Academy of Family Physicians (MAFP) and Michigan Association of Osteopathic Family Physicians (MAOFP) invite family physicians, family medicine residents, and medical students to downtown Lansing on Wednesday, March 20, 2024, to advocate for family medicine.

    Registration is now open. There is no cost for MAFP and MAOFP members to attend but advanced registration is required. Please invite your colleagues to join you. The greater the number of advocates that participate in Advocacy Day, the louder the family medicine voice!

    Legislation introduced in the House would maintain the physician-led patient care team, mandating advanced practice providers to assume specific duties within the scope of their regular professional activities. HB 4472 would also require advanced practice providers to maintain appropriate collaboration and consultation with a physician.

    Please contact your State Representative today and urge them to vote YES on HB 4472.

    Patient-centered, physician-led care is the best way to increase healthcare access without compromising patient safety or quality of care. However, legislation has once again been introduced in Michigan that seeks to remove physicians from patient care teams. SB 279 would expand the scope of practice for advanced practice providers and jeopardize patient health and safety.

    Contact your State Senator today. Tell them to vote NO on Senate Bill 279.

    MAOFP and MAFP submitted a joint letter to the editor in response Medscape article, "The NP Will See You Now: Clinic Staffed by Nurses Provides Primary Care," asserting that the authors do not reflect the viewpoint and voice of our organizations or family doctors. The letter states that the physician authors did not sufficiently describe the training and educational differences between nurse practitioners and physicians, and that when our two professions collaborate in patient care, the safest and most effective treatment is provided.

    The Bureau of Professional Licensing has determined that physicians may delegate limited prescribing authority to pharmacists to allow them to prescribe self-administered, hormonal contraceptives. This is permissible under Michigan law, subject to certain conditions and requirements outlined in this Interpretive Statement. If a physician and pharmacist(s) choose to enter into a delegation agreement to allow the pharmacist(s) to prescribe self-administered, hormonal contraceptives, they may wish to review and consider this Sample Delegation Agreement for Pharmacist-Prescribed Self-Administered, Hormonal Contraceptives.
