Research in Action 2020

Learn from PA Researchers as they cover topics that will help clinicians and educators advance the PA profession. These sessions include topics related to PA employment such as a look at the amount of on-the-job training PAs received, the development and use of standardized note templates. Also, included are patient perspectives and satisfaction with PAs, improving patient outcomes such as online cognitive behavioral therapy for adults with insomnia, PAs as mental health first aid counselors, and oral health integration. In addition, there is research on how online PA education can be effective, the integration of point-of-care ultrasound curriculum, and who is training PA students; plus, many more!
