State-Based Coalition (SBC) Program

Building State-Level Coalitions with Impact

The Coalition has developed a virtual training session on how to build state-level coalitions that will have an impact. Some of the topics covered in this webinar include background information on the Coalition, the role a coalition can play in addressing scope of practice issues on the state level and an overview of tools that are available to support coalition development in your state.

A webinar took place on July 21, 2011 to educate organization leaders on building state-based coalitions to address scope of practice challenges at the state level. Here are questions and answers from that webinar.

The Coalition for Patients’ Rights (CPR) is pleased to announce the beginning of a new State-Based Coalition (SBC) Program for state/regional organizations, branches and representatives of the national CPR organizations. The purpose of these Coalitions is to enable a coordinated, proactive response by our stakeholders to scope of practice developments at the state level, particularly attacks by the Scope of Practice Partnership (SOPP) and state and local medical societies. The SBC Program will facilitate:

  • Networking and information-sharing at the state level between CPR organizations
  • Creation of state-based CPR coalitions that reflect the national membership of the CPR
  • Development and sharing of resources for state scope of practice issues

State and local organizations should contact the CPR representative of their national organization for further details.

Participating organizations of CPR have provided the following links to their state and regional contacts.
