PA Practice Law Modernization

WAPA's leadership is working on a comprehensive effort to encourage Wisconsin to adopt Modernization of PA Practice Laws, which incorporates modernized language that aligns with AAPA policies. For example, the term "supervision" has been universally replaced with the term "collaboration", and the document now references "PAs" instead of "physician assistants".
