The September issue of Texas Medicine features a cover story on maintenance of certification exams that doctors say are exhausting to prepare for and largely feature multiple-choice questions that entail regurgitating facts often irrelevant to what they see in daily practice. In the issue, you'll also find coverage of what TMA is doing to educate doctors on a new law that requires Texas physicians who diagnose a child with Down syndrome to provide parents with information on the disorder. The September issue highlights TMA's recommendations to improve the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' proposed rule to implement MACRA; standing pharmaceutical orders for naloxone, used to rescue those who overdose from opioids; and resources physicians can use to prevent employee theft in their practices.
