UW Medicine participates in call for health care practice law reform

February 13, 2020

Around the country, the collective voice of eight directors of health workforce research centers came together to call for a reforming of laws and regulations that limit the practice of health professionals. Their commentary was published Feb. 12 in The New England Journal of Medicine.

“Moving ahead with health reform without addressing the health workforce is like driving a car with a flat tire,” said Bianca Froger, University of Washington School of Medicine associate professor of family medicine, Center for Health Workforce Studies director and lead author.

The authors are calling for states to revisit their scope-of-practice laws and regulations across health professions to keep the well-being of patients central to the discussion. Read the full UW Medicine press release online.
