Welcome to PAs for Tomorrow

  

PAs for Tomorrow is a professional group of PAs committed to the idea that the PA profession must present itself accurately, as autonomous professionals, to survive and prosper in the future medical care marketplace. We believe that every PA must be represented by a title that accurately describes their full worth. We believe in action, terminology, and legislation that will remove barriers to PA practice, allowing us to provide our care more effectively and more efficiently. We believe our profession needs quality research that quantifies our full impact in the medical world across our varied scopes of practice, both in primary care and specialties. We believe in fair reimbursement for all clinicians, regardless of their title. PAs impact and benefit the lives of millions of patients each day, both across the United States and throughout the world. It is time for our profession to show it.


Let's Work Together To Ensure Our Future




 



     

President's Message
July 2016

Just a brief note to let you all know what your board has been up to. In May, the newly seated board of PAFT met at the AAPA convention in San Antonio and set the agenda for the next year. Several significant projects and policy statements will be forthcoming in the next few months. The board was present to hear and give testimony in the house of delegates on several issues of importance to our members, including the motion for full practice authority, which we cosponsored with the AFPPA. The board is currently investigating PA and NP pay practices at the VA. We are also working to develop a statement on the use of PAs in EMS systems for those systems which currently only use NPs. The board is also developing a statement on the newly proposed NCCPA recertification process. Our board continues to be active on social media sites, including the AAPA Hudddle, the PA forum, and Clinician1.com as well as several physician websites.

We continue to investigate ways to expand PA autonomy and scope of practice in primary care and specialty settings.

We are working with several PA programs to help develop strong political advocates in the next generation of PAs.

Please do not hesitate to contact the board with any questions or concerns you may have.

If you have an article of interest or a statement you would like us to consider for publication in the newsletter, please forward it to our attention.

Thank you-



Eric Holden PA, DHSc
