The AAPALM board discussed and adopted a number of initiatives and priorities for the organizational year. Members please get involved and help with these.

  • Complete the state by state list of law firms that deal with PA issues: 1) licensing and employment issues; PA malpractice defense.
  • Expand the Speakers Bureau. More AAPALM members to join the AAPALM Speakers Bureau. Give talks to and participate with local and national PA groups, your local and other state chapters.
  • Review and Revise the AAPALM Bylaws.
  • Write articles for the newsletter! Please email Marcos with even short articles that may be of interest to members or with any activities you have conducted that may be of interest to members.
  • Promote AAPALM. Reach out to PA schools, state & local chapters, other PA specialty groups to educate our peers as to the organization’s mission statement and focus.
  • Promote safe clinical practice. Provide education. Write articles for local PA newsletters, alumni papers, even popular press at local level to again, educate and inform about common clinical errors.
  • Get word out among our colleagues about what the process involves when the PA runs into the judicial system (malpractice, certification or license issues).
  • Develop lectures on videotape for CME for PA state chapters and PA programs.
  • Compile a list of most common state compliance issues – post on website.
  • Develop a policy paper on recommendations for safe, quality patient charting.
  • Explore avenues for the rehabilitation and reincorporation of PA’s who run into compliance or practice issues, facilitating their reintegration back into workplace. Investigate state programs that are already in place.
