Description

The integration of nurse practitioners and physician assistants into various care settings has had a largely beneficial impact on healthcare, in terms of increased patient access to services and efficiency of operations.  Without careful attention paid to such issues as communication, documentation, and scope of practice, non-physician providers can expose themselves and healthcare settings to serious liabilities.  Learn strategies that reduce professional liability exposure to you and the organization(s) where you practice.
