CBR and medical entities oppose Cofen standardization

The Brazilian College of Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging (CBR) and other medical entities became aware of normative resolution of the Federal Council of Nursing (Cofen), which is yet to be published, which proposes obstetric ultrasonography by specialist nurses.

Already in 2015, the Federal Council of Medicine (CFM) had positioned itself on the subject, through its opinion 622/2015, which questions the legal legality of the Nursing Council's rules on the subject.

In response to the recent approval of Cofen regulations, the CBR has acted in conjunction with the CFM, the Brazilian Medical Association (AMB) and the Brazilian Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics Associations (Febrasgo) to legally challenge such a resolution.

As a national representative body of the specialty and aiming at good patient care, the CBR informs its members that it is attentive to follow up on this relevant issue.
