Recorded OTA Webinar On-Demand (No CME credit awarded.)
New roles for APPs (Advanced Practice Providers) have occurred throughout health care, but predominantly in acute care settings. Orthopedic trauma practices can benefit from APPs, but there are many challenges to the successful integration of the APP role (Bryant-Lukosius, D. 2004). These challenges include scheduling patients and defining appropriate roles and responsibilities for performing procedures. Utilizing APPs can help create efficiencies in the OT practice and enhance patient experiences. (Bryant-Lukosius, D. 2004) but there can be challenges to understanding the value of the addition of an APP. It is important for orthopedic surgeons and their practice managers to learn how to most effectively integrate an APP into their OT practice, given their institutional culture, bylaws and setting as well as legal statues regarding scope of practice and reimbursement.
