Welcome and Opening Remarks followed by Exploring Physician Assistant Funding Models and Impact

October 19, 2023 from 8:45am ADT to 10:00am ADT

Grand Ballroom CDE

In this research we look at how physician assistants can help the current health human resource challenges faced by Canadian healthcare systems. We explore funding models to broadly integrate PAs into three practice settings: primary care, emergency care, and orthopedic surgery. 

Learning objectives: 

  • How can a team-based model of care improve practice efficiency?  
  • What are the challenges to integrating physician assistants into Canadian health teams?  
  • What physician assistant funding model holds the greatest potential for the Canadian healthcare systems?
