Signed by author: "To the PA History Society and Center: Please accept this copy of my dissertation that represents the first comprehensive examination of PA safety and malpractice over the first 17 years of data collected in the National Practitioner Data Bank. It is my hope that it would become a starting point for future and continuing research on the safe and quality care provided by our great profession. I would like to dedicate this volume to Reggie Carter for his tireless efforts at preserving our PA history & for his wonderful and inspiring professional example over the years. -- Jeff Nicholson, PhD, PA-C (presented at the AAPA Conference -- San Diego, May 25, 2009.)"
