i was excited to read this, if successful they will be introducing PA courses into our Med Schools! This is a big step forward for SA especially with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital being built. i think the only fear they have is that PA's and Nursing staff will clash when it comes to patient care, but the US have assured our Deans and CEO's that this isn't going to happen.

i met one of the PA's and got chatting about how he thinks it's working, he said that having PA's in SA would be one of the best moves we could make, free up the doctors to do the less 'pathetic' (i use that word loosely) jobs like suturing etc and leave them for bigger more needed traumas.
