Funding Models for Physician Assistants

Conf B of CCBofC Physician Assistants

As population health needs become more complex and the demand for services increases, optimizing health care workforce configurations, service delivery approaches, and funding models becomes increasingly important. Physician assistants (PAs) are an existing and largely untapped health provider group that could be better leveraged to narrow health care service gaps in Canada.

Funding Models for Physician Assistants: Canadian and International Experiences is the third installment of The Conference Board of Canada’s series on PAs. It provides an overview of several funding sources for employing PAs, including Canada’s experience in Manitoba and Ontario, and international models in the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands. The purpose is to provide considerations for the Canadian context and evidence to engage in dialogue about the expansion of PA roles within Canadian health care systems.
