National Physician Assistant (PA) Day is on Nov. 27: This week, please join me in thanking PAs at UHN for the valued services they provide across multiple programs. PAs are highly skilled professionals who can work in any clinical setting to extend physician services and improve access to care for patients. They perform assessments, histories and physical exams; order and interpret labs and diagnostic tests; review and order medications; coordinate care and transitions between hospitals; perform procedures and assist in the operating room and clinic. Stay tuned for a great UHN News story on these colleagues – it will be published on Thursday, Nov. 26.
