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 PA Practice in California. 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!
- For the care you provide to your patients
- For ensuring your professional future
- For the advancement of the PA Profession here in California
SB 697 Benefits You, Patients, Physicians and PA Employers
The purpose of SB 697 is to reduce the restrictive barriers currently placed on PAs and instead allow practices to determine how best to work with each unique PA in each unique setting. Each practice knows how best to utilize PAs, and the physicians who work with PAs know how best to supervise them. One size does not fit all.
