Kansas PAs asked to participate in end of life research project/survey

Posted about 1 month ago in Research

Physician Assistant graduate students at Wagner College in Staten Island, NY have asked for Kansas PAs to assist in a research project. The research project focuses on PA education, specifically on the subject of end of life discussions.

The study consists of a nationally distributed survey to certified PAs nationally.

This study investigates if PA-Cs consider that their education and clinical exposure to end-of-life discussions as a PA student appropriately prepared them to facilitate such conversations as a PA-C.

The study can help PA programs better equip their students as future PAs to have EOL discussions with their patients and help seriously ill patients receive better care if PAs are more prepared to have EOL discussions.
