Support Regulatory Change to 18VAC85-50-110

I speak in favor of the proposed regulatory change.

PAs are medical professionals and have a long history of providing team-based health care.  The current language implies that a PA would not seek out consultation when a patient fails to improve.  Being trained in the medical model, a PA would of course seek out consultation when indicated, as would any other clinician who follows the standard of care.
