State Medical Society Opposes Bills To Put Some Doctors' Duties Into Others' Hands

Illinois doctors want to block other health care professionals from taking on jobs that have traditionally only been done by certified physicians.  But the head of the Illinois State Medical Society says the opposition is motivated by public health, not a desire to protect turf. 


The society is opposing several bills… one which would let dentists provide immunizations, and another which would allow psychologists to prescribe drugs for people with certain mental illnesses. 


Doctor Eldon Trame says neither group has the medical training needed to administer those medicines safely without risking complications.
