This article was sent to us and I think it does a great job explaining the facts. The present narrative, coopted by the AANP, has to be shown for what it is. Oh, it’s not that bad? From the article:
Meanwhile, members of the American Medical Association’s Scope of Practice Partnership shared an insightful slide presentation from a recent AANP meeting. I was drawn to one slide that lists AANP “Board Initiatives.” Parts of it are repeated in more detail in the AANP’s 2019 strategic plan. I call your attention to two bullet points on that slide:
- “Patients nationwide will have full and direct access to high-quality care and will choose NPs as their health care provider” (emphasis added); and
- “NPs will have parity with physicians and other providers in reimbursement, payment, and government funding.”
This is their strategic plan.
Please read the whole piece. Dr. David Fleeger MD was very courageous for putting it out there. As of now, we see NO bad “patient” reviews on the different physician ratings sites. Just wait. The libel will start soon.
