Support Increase

As a seasoned LVT I have encountered numerous LVTs that have become complacent and subpar due to burnout and/or lack of challenge, attending a couple of free dinner CEs that may not even pertain to them.  Although 2 hours seems small (it is a 33% increase!), it is a step in the right direction, holding our profession accountable for the medicine we are practicing and the quality of our patient care.  Those who consider additional CE burdensome are an insult to the rest of us that are fully invested in the integrity of having a license and being the higher standard.
