August 20 began the 90-day period of the Florida Board of Chiropractic Medicine’s Emergency Order which allows alternate methods by which Florida chiropractic physicians may obtain continuing education hours.
Citing to several Executive Orders and declaration of a public health emergency, Emergency Rule 64B2ER20-30 authorizes licensees to obtain all required continuing education hours by any means, live, virtual live, or synchronous or asynchronous online. The Emergency Rule also authorizes first year licensees to satisfy the required meeting attendance through attending the November 6, 2020, livestreaming Board of Chiropractic Medicine meeting.
In addition, at the same meeting where this Emergency Rule was proposed, the Board determined to initiate rulemaking to amend the Board’s underlying rules in Chapter 64B2, Florida Administrative Code, to allow online and virtual live through the current renewal biennium, March 31, 2022; after this date, the existing requirements will resume unless altered by subsequent Board action.
THE FULL TEXT OF THE EMERGENCY RULE IS:
64B2ER20-30 Satisfaction of Continuing Education and/or Meeting Attendance Requirements Through Online or Virtual Live Technology.
For the duration of this Emergency Rule, all Florida Board of Chiropractic Medicine licensees may obtain all required continuing education hours by any means, live, virtual live, or synchronous or asynchronous online. In addition, licensees may satisfy the requirements of Rule 64B2-16.007, F.A.C., through attending the November 6, 2020, livestreaming Board of Chiropractic Medicine meeting.
