Perspectives of Physicians and Nurse Practitioners on Primary Care Practice
AbstractA study finds that, although primary care physicians and nurse practitioners mostly agree that nurse practitioners should be able to practice to the full extent of their education and training, they strongly disagree about proposed changes to the scope of nurse practitioners' responsibilities. The surveyâ€”led by investigators from Massachusetts General Hospital, the Institute for Medicine and Public Health at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and Mathematicaâ€”revealed points of disagreement on appropriate leadership roles for nurse practitioners, reimbursement levels, and overall quality of services.
