CBI’s Engaging in Scientific Communication with NPs and PAs conference offers attendees the opportunity to benchmark with peers on strategies for optimizing interactions with non-physician healthcare providers. The role of NPs and PAs has continued to evolve and due to their prescribing power, pharmaceutical companies have begun to take a greater interest in these HCPs.
