Health Care Reform Programs
Federal Legislation Medical Law Reforms
State Legislation Medical Law Reforms
FDA & PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES REFORM
The Palatine Foundation firmly believes in; and, supports all actions towards the reform of specific current AMA and FDA approved treatment protocols, drugs, and banned treatment protocols and banned drugs, or natural alternatives protocols, as alternatives to the current menu.
TPF firmly believes that the majority of approved drugs, certain specific treatment protocols, and medications, do MORE HARM THAN GOOD and should be removed from all further use.
TPF believes that while current medical technology allows for substantive trauma care, many of the existing protocols for handling medical conditions need to be revised to place focus on the needs of the root cause of a patient’s condition rather than symptomatice relief and the technical limitations of the doctor.
PATIENT ADVOCACY REFORM
Further, TPF supports Total Patience Advocacy to place the patient in charge of their treatments instead of being under “Compliance” RULES from direction of their doctor(s), specialists too, who rarely consider, or are aware of, the patient’s total picture. We demand that doctors disclose their findings to each patient, not withhold info as some do now. We also demand patient audits of their centralized digital medical records to replace errors of entry and ommission that are affecting patients in loan applications, insurance rates, insurance availability, job applications, and banking services, that is the case now.
Patient Protection and Patient Empowerment is the goal.
SAFER DRUG APPROVAL & TESTING REFORM
The attitude of the AMA and FDA that “the dangers from side effects are acceptable risks for treatment of disease and conditions” is NO LONGER ACCEPTABLE in all cases where ill side effects of drugs may be long term and causing accumulative damage to the patient.
MEDICARE & INSURANCE REFORM
It has become policy for Medicare, and the insurance companies, to pay for treatments, diagnostics, and medicines that cause harm over time; but, they refuse to pay for proven treatments that correct these side effects.
NATURAL & “ANCIENT” REMEDIES REFORM
We fully support the use of older proven medicines; and, older natural remedies that have been shunned and denied by the medical community for decades. Since research has shown the natural medicines derived from plants Big Pharma has started an effort to control those plants and their supplements. This should not be allowed to happen.
