    The American Medical Association gathered physician and medical student leaders from all corners of medicine at its Annual Meeting of the House of Delegates to shape guiding policies on emerging health care topics.

    The new policies adopted on the final voting day of voting at the AMA Annual Meeting include improving health care of minority communities in rural areas, increasing awareness of high dose biotin interference in lab test results, calling on stores selling tobacco products to post information about anti-smoking hotlines, decreasing youth access to e-cigarettes, regulating nicotine analogue products and protecting physician practices and patients against cyber security attacks.

    On its policy regarding stores selling tobacco products, AMA said, “Bolstering its robust tobacco cessation policies, the AMA House of Delegates favored a policy requiring stores that sell tobacco or nicotine products to display information about anti-smoking hotlines. Hotlines, such as one operated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, provide free confidential coaching over the phone to help people stop smoking. Hotlines offer many of the services and similar support to those in smoking-cessation classes and can be a valuable complement to physician care.”

    “For years, anti-smoking hotlines have helped people stop smoking with trained coaches who offer personalized plans to quit. Requiring stores to post a hotline number is part of the AMA’s longtime work to reduce tobacco-related morbidity and mortality,” said AMA Trustee Ilse R. Levin, D.O., M.P.H. & TM.
