Question geared towards PAs in the oncology and rheumatology private practice realm - Can a PA be the only provider on site when our nurses are infusing our biologic medications (ie TNF inhibitors, B cell modulators, etc). Some of these medications are technically classified as "chemotherapy." Not sure if there needs to be DIRECT supervision from an MD for this type of infusion/procedure (or can they just be a phone call away). Would this also vary state to state? Any insight would be wonderful!
Hi gang! My wife and I are thinking of moving to NV next year and I can't seem to find any solid info on practice laws. They seem to be favorable overall but it's important to me to maintain a decent scope of practice. Background: I'm a supporter of OTP (actually, I was a supporter of FPAR), I currently work in CA (not the best state for PA practice, but not the worst), and have worked in NY and VT (which were both great with respect to practice laws.)
Can anyone provide insight, specifically around things like co-signature, "supervision" and general climate toward PAs? In CA, we also have to list our collaborating physician's name on every chart we touch and every Rx we right. Is this the same in NV?
I am a physician assistant student interested in current legislation issues concerning PA practice in the state of Texas. If anyone has any links to resources regarding this topic I would be very appreciative. I am looking for both current legislation issues concerning PAs as well as legislation that has not passed but that would improve a PAs' scope of practice in the state of Texas.
