Image for A guide to the Board’s position statements as of 12/31/2010 Each year, the NCMB publishes its complete position statements as a guide for all licensees. The statements are also available on the Board’s website.

The Board’s Policy Committee reviews the content of the statements regularly, making necessary revisions to address changes in medical practice, new, innovative methods and procedures or matters of policy. In 2010, the Board amended five statements including: Guidelines for Avoiding Misunderstandings During Physical Examinations; Access to Medical Records; Professional Obligation to Report Incompetence, Impairment and Unethical Conduct; Advertising and Publicity; and Unethical Agreements in Complaint Settlements. In addition, the Board adopted two new statements: Telemedicine and Collaborative Care Within the Healthcare Team (both on page 20).

Because of length, they are included here in PDF form.
