19th ANNUAL JOSEPH JANSE LECTURE 
Who Among Us Will Sustain the Flame?
Carl S. Cleveland III, D.C., President 
Cleveland Chiropractic College - Los Angeles and Kansas City Campuses


ABOUT THE LECTURE SERIES ...

The Federation established the Joseph Janse Lecture Series in 1990 to honor Dr. Joseph Janse’s legendary oratory talents and lifelong insistence that those who are committed to chiropractic must – unceasingly – challenge the status quo. He believed that wherever we are, it’s not as far as we could be.

Speakers for the Janse Lecture series are chosen by a committee of the FCLB board based on their oratory skills, ability to envision future possibilities, and to encourage the audience of regulators to consider new points of view, new perspectives in their approaches to public protection.

The FCLB board does not review, screen, or approve the Janse remarks, either in advance of their delivery or after the fact. The Janse Lecture is successful if the speaker presents a different viewpoint and rekindles passion.

Like any authentic human relationship, it should provide comfort to the distressed, and distress the comfortable.

·          Detailed Content Outline

Regulatory Impacts of the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners US doctors of chiropractic in all but two jurisdictions act as Medical Examiners while performing the physical exam required of commercial motor vehicle drivers. To increase highway safety, new federal legislation is in the process of establishing the National Registry of Certified Medical Examiners (NRCME). The NRCME will require Medical Examiners to attend approved training and pass a certification test. The FMCSA estimates that 40,000 Certified Medical Examiners will be needed every two years. NRCME approved training should meet U.S. jurisdictional requirements for continuing education for relicensure.

FOCUS PRESENTATION:
Is it Consistent? Is it Fair? Will it Work?
Making Defensible Decisions about Professional Discipline

James R. Anliot, Esq. - Director, Healthcare Compliance Services
Affiliated Monitors, Inc.


How do boards reconcile the need for fairness and appropriate consideration of individual circumstances with the need for consistency in decision-making? How can boards determine whether public protection requires the exclusion of an individual from practice or whether a remedial approach is more appropriate?
 

 11:20 AM

RECORDKEEPING: Challenges and Resources for Boards
Cynthia Vaughn, D.C., Chair - ACA Clinical Documentation Committee

In 2005, the Office of the Inspector General reported that 2/3 of all chiropractic claims in their study were flawed in some aspect, primarily relating to documentation and recordkeeping. The FCLB membership unanimously adopted a resolution to encourage chiropractic regulatory boards to require training in documentation and recordkeeping as part of the requirements for relicensure. What resources are available for both remedial training of disciplined doctors and general education of field practitioners? What is the boards’ role in addressing federal concerns? As a former president of the Texas chiropractic board, Dr. Vaughn has some unique insights into the complexities of this issue.
