The Role of the NCMS Medical Team Task Force (MTTF)

In 2016, NCMS leadership sought to examine the effectiveness of current North Carolina laws regarding physician supervision of advanced practice nurses and PAs. In light of our evolving health care system and practice, the MTTF was formed to review the existing requirements for physician supervision and to determine if a modernization of those requirements was warranted.

Current Legislative Proposals:

The interprofessional care team is more crucial than ever to improve patient-care, lower cost, increase population health, and address provider burnout. In light of how the past year has brought unprecedented stress to everyone, in addition to stress among providers already being a burning topic prior to the outbreak, teamwork can be key. Join us for a conversation around the benefits of the interprofessional care team on clinician burnout from a group of providers that have embraced the interprofessional care team model in their respective organizations.
