Meeting was called to order at 12:30 p.m. by Chair, Dr. Dennis Harper.
The minutes from the September 08, 2004 Board meeting were approved as written.
The board noted that the annual budget form was completed and sent to the Bureau.
Mary Leonard with the Board of Medicine was present at this meeting to discuss proposed rules for Athletic Trainers and the rules for supervising and directing Physicians. The Board of Medicineís Athletic Trainers law and rules allow Athletic Trainers to have Chiropractic Physicians as their supervising and directing Physician. It was understood when this law was proposed, that the State of Idaho Board of Chiropractic Physicians would propose laws and rules for the supervising and directing physicians. It was noted that as of this date, the Chiropractic Board has not proposed any rules to this regard. The Board of Medicine requires supervising and directing physicians to register with them. Since the Board of Medicine does not license Chiropractic Physicians, they are unable to enforce any rules they have in place for Chiropractors acting as supervising and directing physicians for Athletic Trainers.
Motion was made by Dr. Mayo to direct administrative attorney, Roger Hales, to review the Chiropractic laws and rules, and the law and rules regarding Athletic Trainers and supervising and directing physicians, and to bring back to the board ideaís on incorporating some laws and rules into the Chiropractic law regarding supervising and directing physicians. Seconded by Dr. Moldenhauer, carried.
Mr. Hetrick gave the financial report. The board has a balance of $26,753.25 in appropriation with a cash balance of $76,010.29. The board asked if Ms. Hitesman could include the financial report on the CDís that are sent out to the board members before the meetings, with board information? It was noted that this could be done, but it would be difficult to include the investigative report on these CDís, as the investigative report is compiled right before the board meeting in order to provide the most current information to the board.
Mr. Hetrick gave the investigative report. There has been one complaint for fiscal year 2005. This complaint is currently under investigation. There were 22 complaints for fiscal year 2004. 12 of those are under investigation or pro-review, three are awaiting board determination and five are formal action files awaiting administrative action.
The board reviewed complaint files up for board determination.
Motion was made by Dr. Moldenhauer to close this case. Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried.

The board reviewed continuing education audits and re-instatements.
Board denied the continuing education obtained by licensee CHI-WLD-07-12-1979, and asked that a letter be sent stating licensee must obtain 12 hours of continuing education from a board approved class before his license may be renewed.
Motion was made by Dr. Sterling to deny the continuing education obtained by licensee CHI-GDS-01-12-1993 as this education was not sponsored by a CCE accredited school or pre-authorized by the board. Direct the Bureau to draft a stipulation agreement through the Attorney Generalís office to recover costs and give licensee thirty days to obtain twelve hours of continuing education through a board approved course. If licensee does not agree with stipulation, licenseeís license will be suspended, and licensee will need to reapply. Seconded by Dr. Moldenhauer, carried.
Motion was made by Dr. Moldenhauer to have licensee CHI-MAD-01-13-1998 verify that the continuing education course taken was sponsored by Sherman Chiropractic College within 30 days of receipt of notification. Seconded by Dr. Sterling, carried.
