Call for participation in a comprehensive policy report about the current status of APRN's in Georgia
Georgia Watch is a state-wide Consumer Advocacy group with a keen interest in health care access. After successfully collaborating with the Coalition of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses in opposing the initial drafts of telemedicine rules that would have restricted access to care by restricting the ability of APRN's to provide care delivered by telehealth means and supporting efforts to remove barriers to APRN ordering of radiological imaging tests, Georgia Watch applied for and received a grant to study the utilization of APRN's in Georgia.They are conducting interviews of APRN's and other stakeholders throughout the state. You are encouraged to read and respond to the following message from Georgia Watch. For more information about Georgia Watch please go to www.georgiawatch.org (Clark Howard is an advisory board member)
CONSUMER ADVOCACY GROUP LOOKING TO INTERVIEW DOCTORS, MEDICAL PRACTICES AND HOSPITALS and APRN's ON APRN SCOPE OF PRACTICE RESTRICTIONS IN GEORGIA FOR POLICY REPORT.
The Health Access Program at Georgia Watch received a grant from the Georgia Health Foundation to write a comprehensive policy report on the current status of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) in Georgia. The Health Access Program at Georgia Watch works to ensure that all Georgians have access to safe, quality and affordable healthcare, and we recognize that APRNs serve a critical role in treating patients and improving access to healthcare services in our state. We want to discuss with different groups how they use APRNs in their various practices and their perceptions regarding the pros and cons to the existing barriers regarding APRN practice. We intend for this report to inform future policy and advocacy efforts aimed at allowing APRNs to better serve their communities and expand access to healthcare services, particularly in rural and low-wealth areas of the state.
IF YOU CAN GIVE US 30-45 MINUTES OF YOUR TIME FOR A TELEPHONE INTERVIEW, WE WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE IT. Interviews can be done outside of regular business hours and can remain anonymous if that is your preference.
