New Zealand implementation process (Link)

Recommended Posts

I’m interested in hearing your opinions on New Zealand’s adoptionof the Physician Assistant role in medicine and the scope of practice in thelink below.

I’m an aspiring PA who is definitely excited by the notionthat other countries are adopting PA’s into their health care model. However, Iam concerned with this statement “The PA role is a bit different from and complementary to existing rolesand other professional groups such as Nurse Practitioners, who are able to work more independently”. I hope that theseindividuals who are representing for all other PA’S shine a bright light on theimportance of the profession. http://healthworkforce.govt.nz/new-roles-and-scopes/physician-assistant/frequently-asked-questions
