Physician-led Team

Dr. Osman’s, from his Letter to the Editor opinion piece in Myrtle Beach Online, takes the position that healthcare teams should be physician-led.  He is advocating for a bill in the South Carolina House (S.C. House Bill H.3508), also supported by the South Carolina Medical Association (SCMA), that would lay out a “comprehensive plan for continued supervision of advanced practice nurses (APRN’s) in our state.”

His feelings behind championing physician-led teams are because less/no physician supervision and oversight of APRNs would:

a. “have a negligible effect on increasing access to care”

b. “also significantly impact the quality” [negatively]

c. “rob from the APRNs” a “close supervisory physician provider that can observe, critique, teach, and mentor”

What are your thoughts?




Welcome to Advanced Practice Provider Executives’ (APPex’s) first official blog post!

In accordance with our mission of providing and creating “invaluable administrative and clinical resources, continuing education, opportunities and other rich content for Advanced Practice Providers (APPs)—PAs, NPs, CNMs, CRNAs, and CNSs—and the healthcare leaders and executives who support their practice”, we will be bringing our members, those in the healthcare community, and the public, an interactive forum full of the latest news and trending topics related to one or more of the advanced practice roles.

We will do our utmost to ask provocative questions and encourage dialogue and insight, enacting our vision of engaging “a global community of healthcare leaders and clinicians towards empowering APPs and equipping them with tools to effectively heal humanity.”

We invite you to contribute via your post: discuss, talk, chat, present facts, offer data and evidence, etc.  We ask that you be respectful towards others.  You can aggressively challenge ideas, assumptions, theories, interpretations, opinions, but personal attacks will not be tolerated.
