    Sharing an important message from AAPA:

    Right now, AAPA is working to make sure PAs are included in the COVID-19 packages moving through Congress.  But we can’t do it alone.  We urge PAs and PA students to reach out to their federal legislators to ensure that healthcare providers have access to needed PPE without delay, and to guarantee that a provision to authorize PAs to order home healthcare for their patients in order to move them out of the hospital and free up much needed beds is included in the emergency package now being drafted by Congress.  

    Click here to go to AAPA's Advocacy Action Center and send a message to your senators and representative in the House. 

    Please TAKE ACTION today. 

    Thank you!

    Attention all Hospice and Palliative Medicine PA experts!

    Publishing opportunity:

    Elsevier is seeking contributing authors for a chapter on hospice and palliative medicine in their forthcoming textbook: Gerontology and Geriatrics for Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants:  An Inter professional Approach.  

    This is a wonderful chance for a new career professional/faculty member to begin publishing.  The editors are very helpful (speaking from personal experience).   For more information, contact Freddi Segal-Gidan

    PAHPM and AAPA Learning Central have collaborated to offer PAs an opportunity to expand their primary palliative care skillset while also earning CME.  Learning Central is now offering several presentations available for CME on caring for those with serious illness.  These lectures highlight everything from caring for our patients, their families, and ourselves.  They also feature PAHPM’s own members and experts leading the way forward for PAs.

    For those of you looking for a hospice update for PAs, check out our Hospice Resources page.

    Does your state statutes support PAs partnering and prescribing with hospice?  One tip I've found is to check with your state hospice association.  They often know the latest statutes for each state, and may have been following the CMS rule changes more closely than your local hospice.

    AAPA has also offered to help us clarify what each state is doing.

    For questions regarding restrictive hospice language in your state, contact Erika Miller at
