Coalition Works to Ensure Access, Quality Healthcare for All Americans

WASHINGTON, June 8 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today the Coalition for Patients' Rights(TM) announced that it has sent a letter to President Obama urging him to support the utilization of a broad spectrum of health professions as the Administration works to reform the nation's healthcare system. In its correspondence to the White House, the Coalition reiterated its position that healthcare professionals - who are not doctors of medicine or osteopathy (i.e., MDs or DOs) - are critical stakeholders in healthcare reform.

Additionally, the Coalition - which is comprised of more than 35 member organizations - has launched a national public education initiative to help people better understand the broad spectrum of healthcare providers available to them and to reinforce the importance of maintaining their right to access the providers and care of their choice. Healthcare providers other than MDs or DOs are well-prepared to provide a diverse array of safe, high-quality and cost-effective services to meet the growing healthcare needs of Americans. In fact, many of these professions evolved to fill gaps in healthcare services and to provide other benefits not offered by MDs or DOs, including a higher degree of personalized care, specialty services, greater accessibility and increased affordability.

"We want to remind patients that they have a choice of healthcare providers and that medical doctors should not always be the default provider for healthcare," said Maureen Shekleton, PhD, RN, FAAN, a spokesperson for the Coalition for Patients' Rights. "Right now, patients can choose to see the provider of their choice, whether that provider is a nurse, a psychologist, a therapist
