In the latest edition of this popular guide, the authors have expanded coverage to include an even broader range of health care professionals. … find the latest information on practice restrictions by state as they relate to: behavioral health providers, chiropractors, optometrists, and more. …


CPOM researchers typically need to review a tangled web of statutes, regulations, case law, and attorney general or agency opinions to gain useful insight. The authors have provided a time-saving roadmap to help you:
