In this interview, Janelle Bunce, PA-C, highlights the role that advanced practice providers (APPs) can play in filling the gaps created by the growing work force shortages in urology. Bunce is a physician assistant at Advanced Urology Institute in Naples, Florida.
Specifically, Bunce outlines the help that APPs may offer in the treatment of patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), which she highlighted during a session at the most recent American Urological Association (AUA) Annual Meeting titled, “Choices That Matter: Optimizing BPH Care for Urologists, APPs and Patients.”
Bunce comments, “This is something that's going to help prolong physician longevity, which will also extend and help with the physician shortage. The amount of effort and energy that a physician can pour into their APP will have a return on investment greater than you could imagine.
