Physician assistants. Position Statement.

2011 Apr.
College of Family Physicians of Canada.

The increasing complexity of care in the community setting and resulting pressures in family practice have led to an exploration of new and additional ways to enhance care. The CFPC supports and encourages inter-professional models of practice that promote the efficient collaboration of health professionals to provide optimum care to patients. The CFPC recognizes that physician assistants, under the direction and supervision of a family physician, are among those professionals with the potential to augment access to family practice services/primary care.
