Substitution of prescribing rights in Germany.
|Autor||Hoffmann C, van
In the German health system only physicians have
the right to prescribe medical treatment (?selbständige Ausübung von
Heilkunde?). An amendment of the statutory long-term care insurance
(?Pflegeweiterentwicklungsgesetz?) in 2008 obliged the Federal Joint
Committee to produce a list of treatments which could be prescribed by
non-physicians in future pilot projects. The deadline has expired, but
the list has been announced for the year-end.This development reflects
an important change of paradigm.
