The October issue of Texas Medicine features a cover story on complementary and alternative medicine; TMA policy recommends physicians stay on top of evidence-based studies of complementary and alternative therapies and routinely ask patients about their use of such therapies. In the issue you'll also find coverage of five steps physicians can take right now to prepare for the transition to the new Medicare payment system; TMA's Hard Hats for Little Heads program, which has given away more than 235,000 helmets to Texas children in the past 22 years; a negligence lawsuit with broad legal implications; and the Texas Quality Summit, hosted by TMA and the American College of Medical Quality.
