Success! WSVMA’s HEAL-WA legislation signed by the Governor: Members to have access to extensive online resource library

wsvma   |   Legislative

Veterinarians in private practice generally don’t have access to large collections of journals similar to human physicians and as a result, they rely on textbooks, conferences and online discussion forums like VIN for new information. Well, all that’s about to change.

Today at 11 am, Governor Jay Inslee signed into law Senate Bill (SB) , WSVMA’s legislation to add veterinarians and veterinary technicians to the HEAL-WA online resource library for Washington’s health professionals. HEAL-WA is the affordable online database of current, authoritative clinical information and educational resources for eligible healthcare practitioners in Washington State.

This remarkable resource will be paid for with a $16 addition to your state license renewal fee, so for less than the price of a single journal article, you’ll have an entire medical library at your fingertips.

A unique medical sciences program envied across the U.S., HEAL-WA is managed by the University of Washington (UW) in partnership with the Washington State Dept. of Health and is provided through an annual license surcharge to physicians, osteopaths, physician assistants, naturopaths, nurses, nurse practitioners, psychologists, and other providers. Available resources include electronic textbooks, evidence-based and reference databases, and full-text journals. The vast majority of current HEAL-WA users report that HEAL-WA contributes to higher quality of care, provides clinical value, results in better-informed clinical decisions, and provides new knowledge.

While several other health professionals have enjoyed access to HEAL-WA for years, it was the dream of Vicki Croft, former animal health librarian at WSU’s College of Veterinary Medicine, to bring it to Washington veterinarians. After Vicki retired, Dr. Suzanne Fricke, who succeeded Croft at the library, carried the torch and brought the idea of seeking access to the WSVMA. She assisted further by developing the comprehensive list of desired veterinary journals and resources that were submitted to HEAL-WA. These journals will be added to the HEAL-WA online database along with over veterinary medical e-books available from publishers.

It’s unclear exactly when access to the online resource will begin. Rulemaking through the Dept. of Health will take place to add the online resource to the list of licensing fees for veterinarians and veterinary technicians. Income from the new license fee must also start flowing to fund purchase of the various journals and e-books.

The HEAL-WA administrators will be at the Pacific Northwest Veterinary Conference in September to begin demonstrating not only the merits of the online resource, but how to sign up and login. Future webinars and CE sessions are also planned.

Special thanks go to Vicki Croft and Dr. Fricke, but especially to Greg Hanon, WSVMA’s legislative advocate, for successfully shepherding SB through the complex legislative process, which began in Sen. Guy Palumbo (D-1st) was the Senate bill’s main sponsor this year and Rep. Nicole Macri (Drd) sponsored the House bill. Appreciation also goes to the HEAL-WA administrators, Tania Bardyn and Pat Devine at UW, who testified on our behalf and have done so much to make sure we were successfully added to the program.

The Status of Cannabis in Washington

Washington’s medical cannabis is seemingly second to its recreational program, with the New York Law Journal boasting the Empire State should copy the Evergreen State, especially due to COVID Between outmigration and business loss, the East Coast City needs some West Coast advice, which is to recreational cannabis. 

According to the journal, $ million in legal cannabis industry profits is reason enough alone to make it legal. While Washington is an example of how lucrative legalizing cannabis for recreational use can be, the state also promotes a strong medicinal program, which is tax free. Meanwhile on the verge of the November General Election, the West Coast state is once again being used as an example in a Politico report, detailing the many states with recreational use on the ballot. 

“Less than a decade after Colorado and Washington pioneered the modern legalization movement,” reports Politico when discussing New Jersey, Arizona, Mississippi, Montana, and Minnesota. If all of the states vote yes to respective ballot questions, up to one-third of the U.S. will have made the recreational use of cannabis legal.

Qualifying Conditions

Washington has more than a dozen qualifying conditions that make residents eligible for the statewide medical cannabis program.

Patients with terminal or debilitating medical conditions may benefit from the medicinal use of marijuana under the supervision of their health care practitioners.

Terminal or chronic medical condition means a condition sufficiently severe to substantially interfere with the everyday life and functional activities of the patient, which can be measured and evaluated objectively, and limited to the following:

  • Cancer
  • HIV
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Epilepsy or other seizure disorder
  • Spasticity disorders
  • Intractable pain, limited for the purpose of this chapter to mean pain unrelieved by standard medical treatments and medications.
  • Glaucoma, either acute or chronic, limited for the purpose of this chapter to mean increased intraocular pressure unrelieved by standard treatments and medications.
  • Crohn&#;s disease with debilitating symptoms unrelieved by standard treatments or medications.
  • Hepatitis C with debilitating nausea or intractable pain unrelieved by standard treatments or medications.
  • Diseases, including anorexia, which result in nausea, vomiting, wasting, appetite loss, cramping, seizures, muscle spasms, or spasticity, when these symptoms are unrelieved by standard treatments or medications.
  • Chronic renal failure requiring hemodialysis
  • PTSD
  • Traumatic brain injury

Along with having one or more of the qualifying conditions, a patient must prove they are a Washington resident with a valid driver’s license or state identification card. The state only charges $1 to register for the statewide program, unlike most states that charge a minimum of $50 and upwards of $

Caregivers

The requirements for Washington caregivers are straightforward, only mandating they bet at least 18 years old and a resident of the state, which must be proven with a valid driver’s license or current state identification card. Once approved, a caregiver can both cultivate or purchase medical cannabis on behalf of the patient only. A caregiver is not allowed to assume any medical cannabis prescribed for a patient.

Places to Visit in Washington After Enjoying Your Medicine

The Space Needle, Mount Rainier, and Olympic National Park are at least three reasons to reside or visit Washington. Famous for towering evergreen trees that are wide enough for cars to drive through, Washington has everything from the Bavarian Village Leavenworth to Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, one of many sleeping volcanoes. Sol Duc Hot Springs is where many locals and visitors retreat when not walking the Pacific Crest trail atop mountains. Of course, stopping in Seattle when in Washington is a must, which totally completes the Pacific Northwest trip.

Space Needle

The iconic towering rod in the Seattle sky, known as the Space Needle, continues to draw visitors to the Pacific Northwest, making the sight a must-see when in town. A symbol of the World Fair in the city, where 74 acres of entertainment still remains. Between the monorails and museums, and awesome eateries, it is easy to spend a day flying away the time while having fun. With gardens and fountains throughout the center, stopping to smell the roses is always an option.

Olympic National Park

Hoh Rain Forest, Rialto Beach, and Hurricane Ridge all make up the gorgeousness of Olympic National Park. After taking the Olympic Peninsula's scenic drive on US , locals and visitors alike usually stop at Rialto Beach, sandy shores only minutes from colossal evergreen trees. Sol Duc Hot Springs is where they most find their Zen, soaking in the earth's natural warmth. Most end the day at the park with a hike, ending up at Marymere Falls, just another gorgeous part of the national park.

San Juan Islands

Washington even has islands, a set of four that are reachable by ferry. San Juan National Park has everything the islands could ask for, from fresh seafood restaurants to water recreation. The islands offer whale watching, giving visitors a chance to see the awesome sized mammal. Sea kayaking is also available, giving patrons a chance to experience the seas themselves. The San Juan Islands are ideal for camping, lodging, or only spending a few hours of a warm afternoon to pass away the time watching whales.
