Allied health professionals and Advanced Practice Providers (e.g., P.A., N.P., CNM, etc.) are health care practitioners with formal education and clinical training who are credentialed through certification, registration, and/or licensure. They collaborate with physicians and other members of the health care team to deliver high-quality patient care services for the identification, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disabilities, and disorders. Allied health professionals are experts in a multitude of therapeutic, diagnostic, and preventive health interventions and function in several diverse settings including disease prevention and control, dietary and nutritional services, mental and physical health promotion, rehabilitation, and health systems management. Take a position on the idea that a non-M.D. (e.g., P.A., N.P.) can provide the same level of care as that of a doctor; or is it more of a case of getting what you pay for?
