If you have been keeping up with the FCA Bulletins and web posts, you are aware that the FCA is and has been supportive of online chiropractic CE hours. FCA General Counsel Paul Lambert has testified to that effect before the Florida Board of Chiropractic Medicine (BOCM) on two occasions. The FCA is also keenly aware the words “contact classroom hours” are in the chiropractic CE statute and recent legal counsels to the BOCM prior to the current counsel have advised them that a statutory change would be necessary in order for the BOCM to adopt a rule providing for online CEs. This fact has been mentioned by Mr. Lambert, former BOCM members and even a former BOCM Counsel – in public testimony.

Many thanks to all you engaged last week to participate in the CCE online survey addressing proposed revisions in the CCE Accreditation Standards. The FCA commented via a letter and also responded through the CCE online survey posted on the CCE website. Read more to access the CCE response.
The chiropractic world became aware virtually just last week that CCE proposed accreditation standard revisions were posted for comment with a closing date of September 30, 2016. Some of those revisions eliminated all reference to DC's being primary care physicians. The proposed revisions can be viewed at http://cce-usa.org/Call_for_Comments.html. The version showing track changes best shows what is proposed for deletion and addition to the standards.
