Niran Al-Agba, MD and Rebekah Bernard, MD, the authors of Patients at Risk: The Rise of the Nurse Practitioner and Physician Assistant in Healthcare.
This book exposes the ongoing political maneuverings and corporate agendas that lead to the replacement of qualified medical professionals by lesser trained practitioners.
As corporations seek to save money and government agencies aim to increase constituent access, the minimum qualifications for guardians of our nation’s healthcare continue to decline —with deadly consequences. This is a story with dangerous repercussions for all Americans.
If you are not already being treated by a non-physician, chances are, you will be soon. While advocates for these professions insist that research shows that they can provide the same care as physicians, there are no credible scientific studies to support the safety and efficacy of non-physicians practicing without physician supervision.
Written by two physicians who have witnessed the decline of medical expertise over the last twenty years, this data-driven book interweaves heart-rending true patient stories with hard data, showing how patients have been sacrificed for profit by the substitution of non-physician practitioners. Adding a dimension neglected by modern healthcare critiques such as An American Sickness, this book provides a roadmap for patients to protect themselves from medical harm.
