The most recent update to the AMA Guides® includes updates on proposals such as spine and use of the most current medicine in the AMA Guides. "Conceptual Foundations and Philosophy" (Chapter 1) and "Practical Application of the Guides" (Chapter 2) are being updated to describe the new evidence-based editorial process and approach to incorporate the most current science and evidence. These updates are intended to assist physicians in communicating with the legal community the science and evidence behind impairment ratings and reports. A public comment period is anticipated to begin in early September.
Are you interested in championing adoption of the most current medicine in your state, jurisdiction or territory? The AMA Guides team would love to hear from you. Please email Amy Jenkins for more information.
