Speaker(s): Mary Halter, Senior Research Fellow, Centre for Health and Social Care Research
Mary Halter will discuss and analyse the contribution of General Practitioners and Physician Associates in primary care.
The seminar will address the fact that studies comparing the contribution of different professional groups in primary care often fail to control for case mix in their analyses. There are limited classification systems to describe and compare case mix in primary care, mostly focused on body systems or failing to address patient complexity.
In a study comparing Physician Associates (PAs) and General Practitioners (GPs), a system was developed which addresses both acuity and complexity in the presenting patient and tested its impact on analyses comparing PAs and GPs. This enhanced the ability to comment on whether task shifting between professional groups was possible.
