Dr. Conte with Assemblymember Akilah Weber, MD.
important to note that this program will be free for all
participants and will not be financially supported by
an increase in physician licensure fees.
Additionally, CSA has been actively involved in AB
852 (Wood), which is " clean-up " legislation to AB 890
(Wood), Chapter 265, Statutes of 2020, which created
a pathway for nurse practitioner independent practice.
CSA secured amendments to AB 852 that prohibits a
nurse practitioner from administering, or monitoring,
or ordering the administration of, general anesthesia
or deep sedation. This bill is currently pending in
the Senate Business and Professions Committee.
CSA also continues to work the CMA and others on
regulations being promulgated by the California Board
of Registered Nursing to implement AB 890.
At the CSA House of Delegates session in June 2021,
a major resolution pertaining to " Truth-in-Advertising
(TIA) & Transparency " was passed. This resolution has
multiple facets that the CSA is diligently addressing.
The TIA resolution seeks to create additional
" toolkits " to amplify the existing statutes pertaining
to physician and extender title appropriation (and
misappropriation), as well as create media campaigns
to highlight the role of physician anesthesiologists
in the State of California, and, if necessary, introduce
legislation to clarify title appropriation and ensure
education, training, and licensed degree transparency.
The LPAD team has been meeting with our Florida
Society of Anesthesiologists counterparts to evaluate
strategy and next steps. They have had much
more experience with this issue, having sponsored
legislation in their state to ensure that nurse
anesthetists cannot use the term " anesthesiologist. "
The CSA Board of Directors authorized a digital media
campaign that was a collaborative effort between
Alison MacLeod and Lisa Yarbrough at KP Public
Affairs, along with Rita Agarwal, MD, FAAP, FASA,
and the Communications Committee. The digital
media campaign was initiated in October 2021 and
early evaluation shows that it has been extremely
successful. The glidepath for addressing TIA will take
place over 2022 and 2023 due to the complexities
that exist on multiple levels.
For 2022, LPAD will be spending an enormous amount
of energy and resources for the November 2 MICRA
ballot initiative. Opponents of MICRA want to see
the liability limits increased, and this battle will
be a difficult one. CSA is partnering with CMA, all
specialty societies, and Californians Allied for Patient
Protection (CAPP).
Bills always arise that warrant our immediate
attention, and we are ready to handle those issues as
they surface.
The LPAD work is enabled by multi-disciplinary
contributions, and we are fortunate to have Bryce
Docherty with TDG Strategies as our fierce lobbyist in
Sacramento and Alison MacLeod and Lisa Yarbrough
from KP Public Affairs wielding their collective talents
on behalf of CSA. A special " Thank You " to Drs.
Felipe Perez, Jenni-Bartlotti-Telesz, Chris Tirce, and
Todd Primack, and to the CSA Board and Executive
Committee for their many insights, contributions, and
steadfast support.
