Join us for this important webinar, the first in a series, which aims to set the stage to better understand the role of PAs within our health care system. This session will comprise a literature review as well as brief Canadian-based case studies of PA models of care. Dr. Gabriela Prada will introduce PAs; discuss their role in various health care settings; and synthesize relevant information about the effectiveness and efficiency of PAs in Canada and elsewhere.
The research report is funded by the Canadian Association of Physician Assistants, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, The College of Family Physicians of Canada, and Alberta Health Services.
