As you are reading this issue, I want to take the time to wish you all and your loved ones, a happy and healthy new year. As you might be aware, AAEM has taken a strong stance around the role of the advanced practice provider (APP) in emergency centers across the nation. The discourse is getting louder, and in some cases becoming inaccurate, distorted, and divisive. I’d like to clarify a few things, reinforce some of what has already been said, and present the position of AAEM on many aspects of this conversation. While “Advanced Practice Provider (APP)” is referenced in many sources, AAEM recognizes that even this term invokes certain emotions for both physicians and non-physician health care professionals. This term also does not traditionally encompass all non-physicians but for the purposes of consistency, I will use the term APP.
