    TMNews: #71: March 18, 2019: Direct Access in the Making & Dry Needling Wins, Ft. the LGBTQ Competency Handbook

    Missouri and Texas are headed for direct access for physical therapy. Missouri is in the lead, with a bill that has passed the House and has been read in the Senate. The Texas Physical Therapy Association has a bill in the House and the Senate, both in committee. Both associations are encouraging physical therapists to contact their representatives.

    Physical therapists in North Carolina have won the battle for dry needling; the North Carolina Acupuncture Licensing Board (NCALB) has signed a settlement in which they acknowledge that dry needling is part of the physical therapist's scope of practice. This is a welcome end to 4 years of lawsuits over dry needling.

Headlines: Rehab providers at Oregon Health & Sciences University medical system are protesting a recent change to their productivity standards.

You can check out the petition to OHSU Leadership here.  There are several deadlines coming up if you want to comment on rules and regulations! Go to the APTA's Regulatory Action Center. Some highlights:  Ending today is the comment period for modifying HIPAA. The Health & Human Services Office for Civil Rights is looking for information on how HIPAA laws may discourage or limit information sharing needed for care coordination or the evolution to value based care. The Department of Defense proposed rule adding PTAs and OTAs as eligible providers--the APTA is aware of the errors in this rule, and will be submitting comments for language and terminology changes.  Those comments are due by February 19th. The Pain Management Best Practices Interagency Task Force is looking for feedback on its draft report. This is a federal advisory committee established by the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act of 2016 to propose updates to best practices and issue recommendations that address gaps or inconsistencies for managing chronic and acute pain. If you work with the chronic pain population, please submit your comments by April 1, 2019. The APTA provides form letters for comment. The APTA has released their 2019 Public Policy Priorities.
