Item Description

  • In this article reprinted from the Annual Review of Medicine, Dr. Stead reviews a number of developments "in which nurses are assuming functions traditionally reserved in our culture for doctors, or where new programs are training various types of assistants to perform functions traditionally reserved for doctors." Examples cited include use of nurse clinicians in medical outpatient departments, in pediatrics, and as nurse midwives. Stead describes PAs using the Board of Medicine's type A, B and C classifications. PAs and Child Health Associates are described as Type A PAs; Inhalation Therapist and Orthopedic Assistants as Type B PAs; and Medex graduates as Type C PAs.
