SPINE Study Shows Spinal Manipulative Therapy Far Safer than Opioids for Chronic Low Back Pain
Thursday, 20 May 2021
San Jose, CA. – May 20, 2021 – The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating the public about the benefits of chiropractic care, applauds the findings of a recent study published in the peer-reviewed journal Spine which showcases that a treatment most-often delivered by doctors of chiropractic (DCs) is far safer than opioids for managing chronic low back pain (LBP).
Can a DC Complete the DOH COVID-19 Determination of Extreme Vulnerability Form?
Wednesday, 17 March 2021
DCs are not authorized to complete the Extreme Vulnerability form pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order 21-47 and pursuant to the Department of Health Emergency Order 64DER21-3.  Only those licensed under Chapter 458 and 459 can give the vaccine and determine extreme vulnerability.  
CE Update - Online, Virtual, Live Options Are Back for This Biennium
Friday, 12 March 2021
Today the Board of Chiropractic Medicine met to determine the status of the lapsed Emergency Rule that had allowed all live or virtual live courses to be considered in-person and had allowed all CE hours to be obtained online through the end of the biennium which ends March 31, 2022. The Board voted today to move forward with an approved Final Rule draft from August 2020 that adopts the wording of the emergency rule. Without this Final Rule only 10 hours of online CE would be allowed for this license renewal biennium, leaving many DCs with a problem of counting any CE hours more than 10 that they may have taken online or virtually. The Board assured all meeting attendees that, while the Rule is not yet final, licensees may proceed forward as if it were, utilizing approved live, virtual and online learning options for all 40 hours in the current biennium.  The FCA thanks the Board of Chiropractic Medicine members and Assistant Attorney General Larry Harris for their thoughtful consideration and solution to this unique situation.

What Now? The Latest About Online CE Hours.
Monday, 01 March 2021
The Emergency Rule Order currently allowing all 40 hours of online CEs until the end of the biennium on March 31, 2022, has lapsed, causing uncertainty surrounding online CE courses and credits.
As a result of the impact of COVID-19 and the Governor's declared state of Emergency, the Department of Health, Board of Chiropractic Medicine (BOCM), issued Emergency Order 64B2ER20-30 on August 20, 2020, authorizing licensees to obtain all required continuing education hours by any means, live, virtual live, or online and allowing first year licensees to satisfy the required meeting attendance through online/livestreaming.  The Rules of Administrative Procedure allow for a ninety-day effective period of the emergency rule which was extended a second time.  However, because of the lack of a quorum late in the afternoon at the nine-hour Board of Chiropractic meeting on Friday when the item on the agenda arose, the Board was unable to vote to consider making the Rule that allows all online learning through March 31, 2022, permanent.
