Stat. Ann. No. 65-28a08 Under Kansas law, NPAs may exercise quasi-independence and are not required to exercise direct supervision, but this structure was developed in conjunction with the requirement for an agreement on collaborative practice and the intent of such an agreement, which provides reasonable standards for oversight and delegation. To maintain meaningful cooperation, doctors must do more than sign a Community practice agreement. The Kansas Act (KSA 65-28,127) imposes clear requirements and restrictions on physicians who work with, monitor or delegate non-medical personnel. In particular, physicians can only direct and monitor acts and functions within their specialty that can be performed competently by the non-physician. In addition, delegated acts should be established in a written agreement to provide clear limits and support to non-physicians. The conclusion of an agreement on cooperation practices should be the beginning of a clearly defined working relationship. A father may perform medical services as part of the training, training and experience of the treating physician and on behalf of the physician. The Authority may be granted by a written agreement. Services can be provided in any recruitment authorized by the supervisory physician.

They are angry at being forced to participate in a “senseless transaction” that does not interfere with their practice. But the abolition of a law because some do not comply with it or because its intention stops, does not improve or guarantee quality care. If nurses do not have meaningful co-operation, direction or supervision, this does not mean that they do not need it or that patients would not benefit from the physician`s involvement in the care provided.
