CAPA is Sponsoring a Bold, Audacious Legislative Proposal: SB 697

Success in bringing PA practice into the 21st Century will require monumental PA support of CAPA through membership. SB 697 will empower PAs, strengthen team-based practices and provide patients increased access to quality, team-based healthcare. SB 697 (Caballero) creates parity for California PAs by updating the PA Practice Act to reflect the reality of what you do every day. To reflect the reality of PA practice in 2019 and beyond. Stand with CAPA!

This legislation is required now to ensure that PA practice in California doesn’t wither away in the face of archaic statutes and regulations that hinder Optimal Team Practice (OTP). Our roots are in the medical model, working in teams with physicians. We are not seeking independent practice. We are eliminating the barriers that make PAs less competitive and create vicarious liability for physicians. Stand with CAPA!

We can do this if you and all California PAs get on board and get charged up for what is arguably the most critically important professional fight for California PAs since we fought for licensure in 1975. Together (and only together) we will make real change for California PAs. Stand with CAPA!

Take Responsibility…

  • For the care you provide to your patients
  • For ensuring your professional future
  • For the advancement of the PA Profession here in California

OTP is about securing the future of the PA profession and you need to be a part of it! You have worked too hard and sacrificed too much to watch other professions advance and leave PAs behind. OTP is the future of the PA profession and OTP is only possible through the support of CAPA members.

Take Action…

  • Join CAPA today! Stay a member!
  • Learn all you can about OTP and why it is important to you
  • Pay attention to emails we send with calls to action as we move OTP along
  • Be available to communicate OTP talking points to physicians, other healthcare professionals, staff and administrators.

Can we agree, it is not up to your employer to pay your
CAPA membership dues? It is your responsibility.

(Kudos if you have negotiated that!)

Be a member, stay a member and join your colleagues in one of the most important actions our profession has undertaken.
