How can a Physician Associate support you to improve patient care and service delivery?

“The introduction of new roles, such as advanced nurse practitioners and physician associates (PAs), brings added dimensions of practice and learning to our workplaces.” Royal College of Physicians. Never too busy to learn. London: RCP, 2018

“PAs play a pivotal role in providing continuous support and stability to patients in often stressful and difficult times, helping to deliver improved care in the longer term. The support for the introduction of Physician Associates within primary and secondary care has been overwhelmingly positive from colleagues both within the medical profession, as well as Government. Following the news earlier this year that regulation for the profession is pending, it has never been a more exciting time to be a PA, in this truly versatile role.” Jeannie Watkins, President of the FPA April 2019

“Matt Hancock, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, has announced the introduction of statutory regulation for physician associates, following direct engagement with the NHS workforce. This move will provide these workforce groups with an important foundation, supporting them through a strong regulatory framework and reassuring patients that they are continuing to receive the highest quality of care from the NHS.” Department of Health October 2018

This timely one day conference focuses on developing the role of the Physician Associate in your service, how the demonstrated benefits of the role can support you and your service and improve patient care. The conference will also look at developing the role of the Physician Associate in practice. Through national updates and practical case studies the conference will enable you to understand the role and the benefits and practical implications in practice for deployment in your service. The conference will discuss the regulation, accountability and supervision of Physician Associates in practice with case studies from hospital and GP settings and outline the PA responsibilities and limits of practice with regard to medications and prescribing both now and moving forward.

  • Network with colleagues working to develop the role of the Physician Associate
