Autonomy Task Force Today

The National Task Force for PA Autonomy is a leading expert body on full practice authority for PAs nationally, locally, and inter professionally through advocacy, education, and data collection in order to further advance the PA profession and enhance access to care.

The independent Task Force currently has membership representing 10 states.
We are eager to have more participation including individuals from all states.  

The Task Force is co-chaired by PA Brian Sady and PA Nichole Bateman.  If you are interested in taking an active role in this group, please email us at and  

Background information on the Task Force – the initial announcement and call for participants – can be reviewed here.
