Advanced Practice Providers

In 2013, the AUA Board of Directors formed an ad-hoc group of urologic providers to develop a consensus statement on Advanced Practice Providers. The statement provides guidance to AUA members on incorporating advanced practice providers into various urologic settings, examining issues such as reimbursement, billing, federal and state regulations, and the role of telemedicine. Additionally, it includes several sample patient scenarios to illustrate examples of urologic provider teams in different settings.

Led by Dr. Chris Gonzalez, the work group was comprised of physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants.
