Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers’ Society (PATS) and Pennsylvania Society of Physician Assistants Meet: Discuss Issues to Improve Quality of Healthcare for Athletes
Date:12/3/2013

Harrisburgh, PA (PRWEB) December 03, 2013

Athletic trainers (AT) have always been medical professionals that work with other health care providers to maintain and return the health of the physically active. They have worked with medical and osteopathic doctors to deliver the best health care for physically active individuals. As a result, the Pennsylvania Athletic Trainers’ Society (PATS) annually awards a team physician who deserves recognition for his or her work with Athletic Trainers and athletes in the Commonwealth. Recently, the PATS leadership has reached out to another group in the state to meet and discuss ideas to better provide health care for the physically active in Pennsylvania.

During the recent November, 2013 Allied Health Committee meeting, conducted by Vice Chair George Roberts MEd, LAT, ATC the PATS leadership met with the Board Administrator for the PA Society of Physician Assistants, Susan DeSantis PA-C, The groups came together with the goal of enhancing the quality of care for the physically active individuals in the Commonwealth. In attendance representing PATS was Tanya Miller, PATS Governmental Affairs Committee Chairwoman, PATS President Yvette Ingram PhD, LAT, ATC, and President-Elect John Moyer LAT, ATC. Members from the State Board of Medicine, as well as their attorneys and investigators were present. The purpose of the meeting earlier this month in Harrisburg was to establish the roles of each profession and discuss legal issues surrounding the sideline care of athletes by athletic trainers and physician assistants.

The group discussed the details of how the professions can work together and define their roles within emergency action plans, as well as the policy and procedures for return to play for athletes with injuries and illness.

Mutual respect and communication are keys to better care for the athlete as well as the physically active. President-Elect John Moyer
