🚨Ontario is enhancing access to consistent, high-quality health care by introducing new registration and oversight for regulating physician assistants (PAs).

From April 1, 2025, PAs will be regulated by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO), integrating them more effectively into our healthcare system and improving patient access to care.

"Our government is taking bold action to grow and support Ontario’s health care workforce now and for years to come," said Sylvia Jones, Deputy Premier and Minister of Health.

These changes will help build a more connected, patient-centered healthcare system across Ontario.

Letter to the Editor: Physician Assistants Needed in NOTL! by
Lara Fluri - U of T PA Student and CAPA member

In her letter Lara explains,NOTL's aging population (36.2% aged 65+) and growing healthcare needs are creating a crisis. With a shortage of family physicians, many residents struggle to find consistent care, leading to more hospital visits.

Physician assistants (PAs) are trained medical professionals who can diagnose, treat, prescribe, and assist in surgeries. They can handle 75% of primary care visits without needing a doctor, boosting overall healthcare efficiency.

Bringing PAs to NOTL would:
- Increase patient care availability
- Reduce physician burnout
- Ensure seniors get timely, local care
- Help new residents find care faster

With various funding models available, it's time for NOTL to integrate PAs into our healthcare system and enhance patient-centered care.

The Canadian Association of Physician Assistants is calling on the provincial government to add Physician Assistants (PAs) to primary care teams here in BC.

CAPA organized an Advocacy Day in Victoria on Thursday, April 11th, which was endorsed by MLA Shirley Bond. Members of CAPA spoke with BC Health Minister Adrian Dix and BC United Leader Kevin Falcon leader about exploring how physician assistants can be implemented to help the BC healthcare systems.

The event was organized to help illustrate the “indispensable role of PAs”.

As physician extenders, PAs can practice with negotiated autonomy and can see, treat, and discharge patients without direct onsite physician supervision,” said CAPA BC.

We believe that Physician Assistants (PAs) play a pivotal role in addressing the challenges outlined in the article and are an indispensable part of the solution.

PAs are highly skilled healthcare professionals who work collaboratively with physicians to deliver comprehensive patient care. With the ability to diagnose, treat, and prescribe medications, PAs are equipped to handle 75% of all primary care visits without the need for referral to physician-level care

With over 1000 certified PAs practicing across Canada, it's clear that PAs are ready and willing to step up to the challenge of transforming primary care. As advocates for healthcare excellence, we urge policymakers, healthcare leaders, and the public to recognize the vital role of PAs in building a more accessible, efficient, and sustainable healthcare system for all Canadians. Together, we can harness the full potential of PAs to create a brighter future for healthcare in Canada.

PAs are described as valuable additions to healthcare teams, providing support to physicians and helping to improve access to care for patients. The article emphasizes the importance of recognizing and integrating PAs into Alberta's healthcare workforce to address the growing demand for medical services.

✅ Progress made in BC : We are grateful for the support of BC Health Minister Adrian Dix and MLA Shirley Bond as we advocate for Physician Assistants (PAs) to play a crucial role in addressing BC's healthcare crisis. CAPA's Lobby Day on April 11th, 2024 at the BC Legislative assembly was a success! CAPA's BC Director Lisa Stewart, BC Alternate Director Gabriel Demone, Director of Advocacy and Communications Kristy Corrente and Muhammad Masood Manager of Marketing and communications discussed how PAs can enhance healthcare delivery across various settings. With their ability to reduce wait times, increase access to care, and improve quality benchmarks, PAs are essential allies in tackling healthcare challenges. We also met with the opposition leader Kevin Falcon, giving our Advocacy at the BC legislative assembly a wholesome approach. We would also like to thank Nurses and Nurse Practitioners of BC (NNPBC) for their support and attendance.
