Perform procedures: PAs may perform certain medical procedures such as casting fractures, suturing wounds, administering injections, or conducting minor surgical procedures.
Educating patients: PAs educate patients on their conditions, treatment plans, and provide instructions on preventive care. They may also address questions or concerns that patients have regarding their healthcare.
Collaborate with other healthcare professionals: PAs work as part of a healthcare team, collaborating with physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals to provide the best possible care to patients. They may consult with specialists or refer patients to other healthcare providers when necessary.
Documentation and record-keeping: PAs maintain accurate and up-to-date medical records, documenting patient visits, test results, treatment plans, and progress notes.
Stay up-to-date with medical knowledge: PAs continually update their medical knowledge and skills by participating in continuing education activities, attending conferences, and reading current medical literature.
