Research in Action

The AAPA Research in Action series will highlight the work researchers are doing to in the following areas:

Connect Research to the Profession – We are looking for research on leadership paths, full practice authority, access to care, and more. How can you connect your research to advancing our understanding of the PA profession?

Connecting Research to Education – We are looking for research on PA students and the educational process. How can you connect your research to advancing our understanding of the PA education?

Connecting PAs Globally – We are looking for updates on the PA profession outside the US, including sharing success and roadblock to professional success. How can you connect the profession across the globe?

Connecting Research to Practice – What is the latest in research on AAPA initiatives and how can it be integrated into practice?

Posters will be displayed onsite at AAPA 2018 from Friday, May 18, to Wednesday, May 23.
