I agree

I support the petition to remove the physician's name from prescriptions written by a PA. In most settings the collaborating physician in a group setting changes from day to day and an a physician's name on the prescription is meaningless as that provider was probably not involved in the patient's care.

The current requirement does nothing to promote patient safety and removing it is a sensible advancement for medicine. 

Thank you
