PA-COVID-19-EN

Dear Bishop Dr. Charles Abban, Anthony Asare Arkoh, Joel T.K. Padi, Raymond Morbu, Ghana Senior Leaders of PAs,

Please forward the inserted anonymous survey to all PAs who are clinically active in your country.

My research colleague is a health services researcher at Ariel University and the Ha’afranaim Disaster Research Center in Israel.

We have reports of PAs whose role has changed dramatically as a result of the SARS Coronavirus Pandemic.

This reshuffling of PA roles is a significant finding about the clinical utility of PAs.

Our interest is to identify the flexibility of PAs across the globe. The findings from PA respondents in your country will be compared to the global response to PAs in 18 countries and reported out.
