Message from the President - December 2017

Constance D. Huynh, PA-C, MPH

In my previous post in the WAPA Monitor, I stated that as president I wanted to hear from you to determine what kind of barriers you’re experiencing in your practice. I’ve heard from many of you, and the WAPA Board certainly has its hands full working on your behalf.

One of the first things I do when WAPA receives a request/concern/complaint/criticism is to classify it as national, state, or institutional to determine whether it is within the purview of WAPA to address. As one may surmise, most of the national issues are beyond our reach to change, but we can certainly support and advocate for them. With that in mind, here’s what we’re currently working on: More

Advanced Practice Provider Fellowship in Oncology and Stem Cell Transplant
Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and the University of Washington
More information

Opioid Prescribing: ESHB 1427 Implementation

Meetings and dates between November 2017 to March 2018

WAPA Membership

We are dedicated to the promotion of our profession and need your support for its continued growth. Each Physician Assistant in this state is important to our organization. There is strength in numbers, and we need to watch issues such as reimbursement, practice laws and work on continuing to publicize our great profession.
