Technically, this is the last post for PA Month here on the podcast. Fear not! There will be more PAs on podcasts coming up. However, we wanted to finish our discussion with Fred Wu since people may find this portion on contracts helpful in the immediate future.
Emergency Medicine PA Fred Wu is joining us to talk about starting and advancing a career in emergency medicine. In this two-part series, Fred is reviewing the many aspects of emergency medicine careers from finding a position that will work well for you to signing a contract.
We continue our month of celebrating PAs with a new podcast on a topic not well covered: triaging and assessment of the total joint arthroplasty (replacement) patient. To help us, we have a special guest who is an orthopedic surgery PA named Amy Jean.
Our guest today (the first for PA month here on TOTAL EM) is Adrian Banning. She is an Evidence Based Medicine (EBM) guru and is also on the JAAPA Podcast with a previous guest, Kris Maday. Today though she is here to talk to us about breaking bad news. Something most of us are experienced with but one thing few of us do well. We combine EBM and "soft skills" to better care for our patients and families in this very difficult time.
PA Week is October 6-12 this year. As PAs, we have a lot to be proud of in the 50 years of our existence but with our many advances, there still more we can do. This month, we are hosting PAs for our podcasts. However, to kick off the month, we are going to talk about the challenges that lay ahead. It is worth noting though that much of it is now possible thanks to those who came before us.
