It has been a true honor to watch the profession mature as healthcare continues to evolve. I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this prestigious team and work with such talented individuals.

This is a positive development for PAs working in Ontario's health care system, and we are thrilled to see it enacted.

Thank you Christine Elliott, Robin Martin, and John Fraser for speaking to the third reading of Bill 283, which addresses the important services physician assistants provide and the valuable role they have in supporting patients.

We're very excited about how Bill 283 will improve Ontario's health care system. It’s time for a change.

On the last day of the Legislative Session, I'm pleased to share that Bill 283, the Advancing Oversight and Planning in Ontario's Health System Act, has received Royal Assent.

This Act will strengthen our health care workforce and enhance Ontario's data-driven vaccine rollout.

Though the House has risen, our government's top priority continues to be the health and safety of Ontarians.

We will continue to work hard to stop the spread of COVID-19 and accelerate our vaccine rollout for a two-dose summer.

Today, in the Ontario Legislature, the Minister of Health, Christine Elliott introduced legislation, that once passed, will mean the start of regulating Ontario Physician Assistants under the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario.

This important initiative is a giant step forward to modernizing the PA model in the province and will help solidify the important role that PAs are playing in hospitals, emergency departments and in primary care settings. Enhancing the PA model and regulating PAs will improve patient care, encourage more team-based care and allow PAs to work to their full scope of practice.

Regulation also means that PAs in Ontario will be required to follow standards for competency, safety and ethics like other regulated health professionals in the province.

No endorsement of any products or services is expressed or implied by the use of a particular social media channel. Official Policy Our communication in social media channels should not be considered as the authoritative source of new policy or guidance on services and programs from the Canadian Association for Physician Assistants (CAPA). Availability We aim to update and monitor our social media accounts during regular office hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time) Monday to Friday. Third-party social media services may occasionally be unavailable, and we apologize in advance for any inconvenience.

We may remove content which is outdated, incorrect or restricted in time. We apologize for any inconvenience when this occurs. Commenting Standards: Commenting, replies and repeats We welcome questions, comments, feedback, support and ideas. Users should be aware that comments are monitored and moderated, according to stated rules, and that all posted comments are in the public domain. Users should: • know that they are responsible for everything they submit in their comment(s); • not include personal information in their comment(s); • ensure that their comments are respectful and relevant to the conversation. We welcome comments and questions about the content we post in social media channels, where possible. We may not be able to reply individually to all the messages we receive via social media channels, however, all replies and direct messages will be read. Any emerging themes or helpful suggestions will be forwarded to the appropriate person in our organization. Moderation and review of comments are based on our Commenting Standards. When appropriate, we may participate or intervene. Moderators reserve the right to edit, refuse, or remove comments. CAPA may occasionally share content from other users. This sharing does not imply endorsement by CAPA, and it should not be taken as an indication of any change in CAPAs official position. We expect that conversations will follow the general rules of respectful civil discourse. CAPA will not tolerate comments that are offensive to an individual or an organization, rude in tone, or abusive. We do not discriminate against any views, but we reserve the right to refuse, edit or remove any of the following: • comments contrary to the principles of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms • racist, hateful, sexist, homophobic, slanderous, insulting, or life-threatening messages • serious, unproven, unsupported, or inaccurate accusations against individuals or organizations • abusive, aggressive, coarse, explicit, vulgar, violent, obscene, or pornographic comments • comments that encourage or suggest illegal activity • messages where the sender is not the author (nor the copyright holder, if applicable), and/or posted anonymously or by robot accounts • announcements, solicitations, advertisements, or endorsements of any financial, political, labour, commercial or non-governmental organizations and agencies • attempts to defame or defraud any individual, group or agency • announcements from labour or political organizations • messages written in a language other than English or French • repetitive posts copied and pasted by multiple users • unintelligible or irrelevant messages In short, users should be respectful and make sure comments are relevant.

Comments submitted after hours or on weekends will be read and posted as soon as possible. The views of participants commenting on our social media sites do not necessarily represent the views of CAPA.

Links will be based on their relevance to CAPA and perceived usefulness to our audiences. Similarly, the appearance of a user as a follower, friend or subscriber of a CAPA account does not imply endorsement of any kind by CAPA.

L’utilisation d’un média social en particulier n’implique aucunement la promotion expresse ou tacite de quelconque produit ou service. Politique officielle Nos communications par l’entremise des médias sociaux ne doivent pas être considérées comme une source qui fait autorité relativement à une nouvelle politique, ou des conseils sur les programmes et les services de l’Association canadienne des adjoints au médecin. Disponibilité Notre objectif consiste à mettre à jour nos comptes de médias sociaux durant les heures normales d’ouverture (de 9 h 00 à 17 h 00, heure de l’Est), du lundi au vendredi. Les services des sites de médias sociaux tiers peuvent s’avérer indisponibles à l’occasion, et nous nous excusons à l’avance de cet inconvénient. Contenu Le contenu que nous diffusons dans les médias sociaux est déterminé selon l’intérêt prévu des membres et du public envers notre organisation. Nous pourrions retirer le contenu désuet, inexact ou limité dans le temps. Nous nous excusons pour tout inconvénient dans l’éventualité où cela surviendrait. Normes relatives à la formulation de commentaires : commentaires, réponses et répétitions Nous vous invitons à nous faire part de vos questions, vos commentaires, vos suggestions et vos idées. Cependant, les commentaires sont surveillés et modérés conformément aux règles énoncées, et tous les commentaires publiés sont du domaine public. Les utilisateurs doivent : • savoir qu’ils sont responsables de tout ce qu’ils affirment dans leurs commentaires; • s’abstenir de partager des renseignements personnels dans leurs commentaires; • veiller à ce que leurs commentaires soient respectueux et pertinents à la conversation. N’hésitez pas à nous faire part de vos questions et de vos commentaires sur le contenu que nous publions dans les médias sociaux, si possible. Nous ne pourrons probablement pas répondre personnellement à tous les messages reçus par l’entremise des médias sociaux, mais tous les messages directs et les réponses seront lus. Tout thème émergent ou toutes suggestions pratiques seront transmis à la personne appropriée au sein de notre organisation. La modération et la vérification des commentaires sont conformes aux normes relatives à la formulation de commentaires. Lorsque cela est pertinent, nous pourrions participer ou intervenir. Les modérateurs se réservent le droit de modifier, de refuser ou de supprimer des commentaires. L’ACAM peut parfois diffuser du contenu publié par d’autres utilisateurs. Ce partage ne signifie pas que l’ACAM fait la promotion d’un tel contenu, et ne doit pas être interprété comme l’indication d’un changement de la position officielle de l’ACAM. Nous nous attendons à ce que les conversations suivent les règles générales du discours civil respectueux. L’ACAM ne tolérera pas les commentaires offensants envers une personne ou une organisation, ni aucun commentaire dont la formulation est vulgaire ou abusive. Nous ne faisons aucune discrimination quant aux opinions des utilisateurs, mais nous nous réservons le droit de refuser, de modifier ou de supprimer ce qui suit : • commentaires contraires aux principes énoncés dans la Charte canadienne des droits et libertés • messages racistes, haineux, sexistes, homophobes, calomnieux, insultants ou constituant une menace de mort • accusations graves, sans preuve, sans fondement ou inexactes contre des personnes ou des organisations • commentaires injurieux, agressifs, grossiers, explicites, vulgaires, violents, obscènes ou pornographiques • commentaires encourageant ou suggérant une activité illégale • messages dont l’expéditeur n’est pas l’auteur (ni le titulaire du droit d’auteur, le cas échéant), et/ou publiés sous le couvert de l’anonymat ou de comptes robotisés • annonces, sollicitations, publicités ou promotions de quelconque organisation financière, politique, syndicale, commerciale ou non gouvernementale • tentatives de diffamation ou de fraude envers une personne, un groupe ou un organisme • annonces d’organisations politiques ou syndicales • messages rédigés dans une langue autre que le français ou l’anglais • messages répétitifs copiés et collés par plusieurs utilisateurs • messages inintelligibles ou non pertinents En bref, les utilisateurs doivent être respectueux et s’assurer que leurs commentaires sont pertinents. Quiconque agit de manière contraire à ces règles peut être exclu de manière temporaire ou permanente des espaces de dialogues de nos comptes et réseaux, le cas échéant. Nous sommes conscients que le Web peut être utilisé 24 heures sur 24, sept jours sur sept, et vos commentaires sont les bienvenus en tout temps. Cependant, étant donné la nécessité de gérer les ressources de l’ACAM, la modération et la diffusion des commentaires ont généralement lieu durant nos heures normales d’ouverture (de 9 h 00 à 17 h 00, heure de l’Est), du lundi au vendredi. Les commentaires soumis après les heures d’ouverture ou durant la fin de semaine seront lus et diffusés dès que possible. Les opinions des participants qui publient des commentaires sur nos sites de médias sociaux ne reflètent pas nécessairement celles de l’ACAM. Abonnés et amis La décision de « suivre », de « devenir ami » ou de s’abonner n’implique pas nécessairement que nous faisons la promotion d’un autre compte, d'un autre réseau, d'une autre page ou d'un autre site de médias sociaux. Les liens seront déterminés selon leur pertinence à l’ACAM et l’utilité perçue pour notre auditoire. De même, l’apparition d’un utilisateur en tant qu’abonné ou ami d’un compte de l’ACAM n’implique pas que nous faisons la promotion de celui-ci. Nous prendrons les mesures nécessaires pour supprimer ou bloquer des abonnés ou amis lorsqu’ils ne respectent pas les normes relatives à la formulation de commentaires. Langues officielles Plusieurs sites de médias sociaux sont dotés d'une interface multilingue. Veuillez chercher les consignes vous permettant de sélectionner la langue que vous préférez. L’ACAM est une organisation bilingue qui communique dans les deux langues officielles du Canada, le français et l’anglais. Les communications officielles de l’ACAM seront diffusées dans les deux langues officielles si possible. Lorsque la fonction de commentaires du public est activée, nous invitons les utilisateurs à répondre dans la langue officielle de leur choix. Lorsqu’un commentaire, une réponse vidéo ou une question exige une réponse, nous y répondrons dans la langue officielle d’origine (c.-à-d., si le commentaire est en français, l’ACAM y répondra en français. Lorsque des sommaires sont fournis, ils seront diffusés simultanément dans les deux langues officielles et seront de qualité égale. Vie privée Les comptes et réseaux de médias sociaux ne sont pas hébergés par l’ACAM. Ces comptes constituent le prolongement de notre présence sur Internet. Nous conseillons aux utilisateurs de lire la politique sur la vie privée de tous les fournisseurs de services, notamment Twitter et Facebook. Les utilisateurs ne doivent pas partager de renseignements personnels, tels que leur numéro d’assurance sociale, leur adresse résidentielle, leurs numéros de téléphone et des photos de personnes identifiables.

Hello Ottawa and area PAs! Are you hoping to get involved and be a vaccinator? I am capturing contact information for local PAs who may be interested in vaccinating. I am working with the Associate Medical Officer of Health and he and I are working on getting PAs involved with Ottawa Public Health vaccination efforts. It's likely that they will be in need of extra staff in mid to late May or later when a glut of vaccine is expected. Currently with my own OPH linked site through my FHT we are well staffed and don't anticipate needing extra staff right now, but we may require people in the summer. I will share this info with other Ottawa area vaccination sites as well since there is a significant HHR issue at present. There is no guarantees this will work out but I am optimistic.

Hello PA colleagues. Has anyone helped out their local health unit with Covid vaccines? Our family health team was asked for volunteers by the EOHU in Cornwall. My question is....how am I able to see patients that aren’t rostered to my clinic? Our clinic isn’t doing vaccines. As per my medical directive any patients I see must be registered to my clinic/supervising physicians. Any info is appreciated. Thank you! Nancy Bonaparte
