IAPA’s 2021 Annual CME Conference will continue to be in-person with an option to attend virtually. We believe a safe and enjoyable conference can move forward with your help to follow the necessary requirements and local government directives. In an effort to ensure the safety and well-being of all participants, full vaccination status against COVID-19 is required of all in-person conference attendees. In the event you are unable to receive a vaccine, a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to your arrival to the conference will be required. Per city ordinances in Sun Valley and Ketchum, face coverings are required regardless of vaccination status. The IAPA will continue to monitor COVID-19 cases and will provide necessary updates in this evolving environment.

COVID-19 hospitalizations hit new record as Idaho health care groups make plea to public 09/02/2021

COVID-19 hospitalizations hit new record as Idaho health care groups make plea to public

COVID-19 hospitalizations hit new record as Idaho health care groups make plea to public “Health care facilities in Idaho are receiving calls from places like Missouri and Arkansas asking if they can transport patients to our hospitals. Which begs the question, when our surge gets worse, where will we send Idahoans?”

PAs and future PAs, we can imagine you have a lot of questions regarding the May 24 resolution affirming “physician associate” as the official title of the PA profession. Please take the time to read this, as this resolution impacts all PAs. https://bit.ly/3fSrdS2

Esteemed Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to announce that the annual IAPA CME conference for 2021 has been confirmed at the Sun Valley Resort for the following dates; November 11-13, 2021. Due to the ongoing pandemic, and recent efforts to establish herd immunity amongst the community via vaccination, it was decided by the board to forgo our normal April meeting and pursue a later date. We are optimistic that delaying the conference into the fall will allow for the current pandemic situation to subside to a more manageable level and provide a safe environment for medical providers across the state to convene in a centralized location. The added benefit of scheduling at a later date is the presence of snow which will allow for additional snow related activities to those who are interested. Additionally, a virtual option will be available to those who are unable to attend the conference in person. Thank you all for your ongoing support and stay tuned for more information. Happy New Year from all of us at IAPA.

Sincerely,
IAPA CME Committee

URGENT! The special legislative session started this morning and there is much maneuvering to weaken or defeat the proposed immunity legislation. Many disparate interests are working against it and hearings will be held in the next several hours.

PLEASE contact your legislators NOW and ask them to support the broadest immunity they are comfortable with - either the original RS or the C1. (They'll know what that means.) Easily contact your legislators by clicking here: https://www.votervoice.net/IDMA/campaigns/76811/respond

If you already contacted them in response to our alert last week, please do it again now. We cannot underestimate the importance of acting quickly. Please also ask your office staff, colleagues, and others to contact legislators as soon as possible.

Governor Little announced a special legislative session that begins August 24. A liability reform bill will be considered that provides immunity for those who make a good faith effort to continue to operate safely during the COVID-19 public health emergency. Your legislators need to hear from you NOW so they know how important this legislation is to you and your practice!
