15 Mar KBVE Practice Act Proposal Stakeholder Feedback Announcement
Nearly 30 years have passed since the last significant updates to the Kentucky Veterinary Medicine Practice Act (the “Practice Act”). In today’s changing medical and technological landscapes, the Kentucky Veterinary Medicine Practice Act is due for modernization.
During 2021, KBVE reviewed and drafted proposed revisions to the Practice Act. While the board previously consulted with stakeholder organizations during this process, the board is now seeking additional feedback directly from licensees and certificate holders on the proposed modernization bill.
KBVE has worked closely with the Kentucky Veterinary Medical Association (KVMA) to provide an opportunity for in-person feedback from licensees and the public. Included with this letter is a schedule of in-person meetings being hosted around the Commonwealth by KVMA’s regional chapters. If you would like to attend, please RSVP to the email or phone number located at the top of the schedule.
Please visit https://www.kybve.com/practice-act.html under the drop-down heading “Veterinary Medicine Practice Act Modernization Proposal” to learn more about this initiative and the proposed changes in the law.
Written feedback may also be submitted to Vet@ky.gov, or mailed to the board at the address in the heading of this letter.
