To focus on current trends, the CHA conducted a survey in November, 1975, seeking information on the utilization of PA's in member institutions. Based on the survey and the review of others' attitudes about PA's, the Association has developed guidelines for an institution's use in preparing to employ this type person. It feels that if these guidelines are followed, an institution can be better assured that its PA's will make a greater contribution to the quality of patient care.
