AAPA plays a critical role in an exciting and far-reaching response to the FDA’s extended-release/long-acting opioid Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS) educational requirement.
AAPA has launched a nationwide initiative, the Diabetes Leadership Edge. The Diabetes Leadership Edge is a call to action by the Academy to address this growing epidemic. It gives PAs the resources to become expert care providers in diabetes and keep patients on track with their treatment. Armed with these resources, PAs can become the go-to providers on diabetes and elevate their value to their practices and patients.
Overweight and obesity compose a chronic disease process of epidemic proportions that prevents on a continuum, likely affecting nearly two out of every three patients treated by PAs. The Obesity Leadership Edge is a call to action for PAs to be able to diagnose and treat overweight and obese patients regardless of practice setting and across the spectrum of the disease and patient’s age.
AAPA’s Caring for Veterans and Military Families Initiative endeavors to bring awareness to all PAs so that they can provide the military and veteran communities the care and support they need.
AAPA brings you information about the US Preventive Services Task Force recommendations. Preventing illness is one of the most important things that PAs do to promote the health of their patients.
Based on patient needs and the ability of the PA profession to make a difference in eradicating dental disease, AAPA, PAs for Oral Health, and the nccPA Health Foundation have joined to be part of a national oral health initiative.
