Exploring the vast array of PA research showcased in the annual ePoster competition is no doubt one of the highlights would-be conference-goers missed this year – but not to worry! For the first time ever, ALL of the ePosters are displayed on AAPA’s website.
“My hope is that PAs and PA students read the research presented and translate the findings into providing a new educational tool for students, a new practice technique for patients, an insight to better clinician management for administrators. Without research there is no growth in the profession,” said Noël E. Smith, AAPA’s Senior Director, PA and Industry Research and Analysis.
This year’s research covers a wide range of topics from developing a standardized note template and minimizing student burnout to defining the quality of care at a student-run clinic and much more.
Front and center in the online gallery are this year’s winners. Congratulations to the following researchers!
