  • FTC: Bill to curb nurse services reduces choice
    A Missouri bill to restrict nurse specialists from providing some pain management services could increase costs, limit access, reduce choice and affect vulnerable patient populations, according to the Federal Trade Commission. The bill does not affect surgical, obstetric or post-operative pain control by nurse anesthetists or anesthesiologist assistants. But it would allow only physicians to use tools such as radiofrequency waves or the injection of drugs into the spinal column. Springfield News-Leader (Mo.)

  • Ohio NPs shoulder growing primary care patient load
    There are 16 nurse practitioners in Crawford County, Ohio, providing primary health care to a growing number of patients as more physicians graduate from medical school and enter specialty practices. NP Cindy Barlage says she wanted to do more for patients, to "not only be part of their treatment but to also be able to diagnose and educate them on their illness and treatments."
