House Bill 392 passes within AK State Legislature

Good Work AKAPA!!

In a partnership with Alaska NPs, your Alaska Academy of PAs helped advocate for the successful passage of House Bill 392 (HB392) within the Alaska Legislature. HB392 will ensure access to efficient, timely and quality health care support for Alaskans and their families in difficult times - making care decisions with respect to life-sustaining directives and prioritizing dignity. House Bill 392 once signed into law will ensure advanced practice practitioners can provide life-sustaining orders when someone is critical and sign off on end-of-life processes as determined by the patient and their care teams.  Providing hospice continuity was key to this legislation by PAs. AKAPA has been advocating for our profession and expanding access. Your membership and commitment to Alaska PAs help continue this effort.  Thank you from the AKAPA Executive Board.
