Scope-of-practice expansion attempts have long been a point of contention between the Texas Medical Association and some nonphysician practitioners (NPPs). The association doesn't oppose scope expansion outright, however. TMA will consider NPPs' licensure expansion efforts when they improve patient care and adhere to safety guidelines, when they have appropriate training, when a physician remains the supervisor of the health care team, and when TMB provides appropriate regulatory oversight. TMA works to prevent scope expansion efforts beyond what NPPs' education, training, and skills safely permit.
