Support proposed change

I speak in favor of the proposed regulatory change.

PAs are trained in the medical model and are adept at providing team-based health care. PAs follow the standards of care and will consult with a collaborating physician when needed. The current regulation implies that practicing PAs would not seek consultation, and the language should be removed.
