When “Cure” Doesn’t Come: Finding Deeper Healing

By Joni Eareckson Tada / September 18, 2019 /

I know what it is like when the “cure” doesn’t come. At the age of 17, I made a careless dive into shallow water and broke my neck between the fourth and fifth cervical level. For years I prayed fervently to regain the use of my hands and legs, but that healing never came.

This book is a compilation of stories, metaphors, insights, and personal experiences not organized around a particular theme. Throughout his 41 year career as a minister to students, the author had numerous opportunities to speak and write. Often the inspiration came straight from the humdrum of daily living and the various arenas that defined his life as a husband, father, minister, carpenter, fisherman, hunter, and gardener. The author leans heavily on his admiration and respect for the Scripture drawing parallels between Biblical truth and everyday life lessons.

Washington, D.C. – July 25, 2019 – Today, a coalition of medical organizations released a public statement condemning recent statements on abortion and conscience protections made by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Physicians, the American Psychiatric Association and the American Osteopathic Association.

End of Life Issues

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / July 22, 2019 / Comments Off on End of Life Issues

As a Christian healthcare professional, have your colleagues ever looked down at you for refusing to prescribe the morning after pill? Or have you ever been punished for maintaining your religious beliefs instead of believing in evolution? Or have you ever been harassed by an attending trying to force you to perform an abortion?

If you’ve experienced any type of hostility or discrimination like this, then you know how important it is for healthcare workers to protect their right of conscience. Right of conscience is defined as the right to practice healthcare in accordance with your deeply held religious, moral or ethical convictions.

Healthcare professionals are being pressured and discriminated against by employers and colleagues because of their deeply held religious or moral beliefs. Almost one in four faith-based professionals state that they have been discriminated against by employers, educators or others in the healthcare system. Nearly two out of five have been pressured to violate their beliefs by referring, writing a prescription or doing a procedure.

Abolishing the right of conscience is dangerous. It’s not just dangerous for the physicians and healthcare workers, but it’s also dangerous for our country, our healthcare system and every patient. In a recent survey of more than 2,800 faith-based doctors, pharmacists, physician assistants and nurses, 95 percent of them said they would quit medicine before violating their conscience.

CMDA is committed to providing the most up-to-date information on the legislative, ethical and medical aspects of the fight to protect the rights of medical professionals. We’ve compiled a great number of resources that you can use to educate yourself and others about this important issue. So get involved today: talk about the issue with your friends, write your senators and send a letter to your local newspaper to let others know how important it is to maintain the right of conscience.

Fanning the Flames of a CMDA Leadership Legacy

Fanning the Flames of a CMDA Leadership Legacy

By Mike Chupp, MD / June 18, 2019 /

I attended my first CMDA National Convention in April 2012 and heard devotional speaker Luis Palau make this statement: “Big doors open on small hinges.” He explained how seemingly small events in our lives may serve to open big doors that God intends for us to walk through in order to enjoy incredible blessings that follow. A small hinge in my life was a letter Dr. David Stevens wrote to me after I had served at Tenwek Hospital in Kenya in early 1988 for two months during my fourth year of medical school.

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / April 8, 2019 / Comments Off on The Coalition of Christian Nurse Practitioners Opposes the American Nurses Association Proposed Position Statement: “The Nurse’s Role When a Patient Requests Aid in Dying”

Marijuana

By Christian Medical & Dental Associations® / March 14, 2019 / Comments Off on Marijuana

The Christian Medical & Dental Associations (CMDA) has developed this policy on “medical marijuana” and “recreational marijuana” with both an inherent belief that the Bible is the Word of God—that it speaks into our time and culture and that God gave us his creation to use to its fullest potential—and with the incorporation of scientific evidence which provides a window into the truths about God’s creation.

To go or not to go, that is the question

By Richard Johnson, MD / February 28, 2019 /

We joined them for professional enrichment and acknowledgement of credentials. Possibly our paper is accepted to be part of the program. And yes, we do get some CME credits and a chance to socialize with colleagues. But do we go or not? Life is so, so busy, and the kids’ school and athletic events are right at the same time. I’d have to get someone to cover my practice and my church commitments. I think I am spinning too many plates!

Marching off the Map

By Tim Elmore / February 27, 2019 / Comments Off on Marching off the Map
