Professor Ellen Mandel Presents on PA Education
Professor Ellen Mandel recently attended the "Creating Space VI" conference, a component of the Canadian Conference on Medical Education (CCME), held in Montreal, Canada. The conference brought together medical and other healthcare educators to discuss and review the status of health, provision of care and future concerns for the nationalized Canadian healthcare system. Medical humanities is highly regarded and research is ongoing on this topic. Dr. Mandel presented a poster entitled "Empathy Change During PA Education." She says, "My poster was well received, as Canada now has three PA programs in addition to their military PA program. PAs along with advanced practice nurses are seen as valuable team members, particularly as healthcare demands increase."
