Instructional Methods: Lecture, discussion and Q and A session
Level of Instruction:  Intermediate

Course Description: This course will address ethical decision-making in physical therapy practice, particularly when there are conflicts among competing ethical principles that arise from the particular interests, wants and needs of the people involved. Specifically, we will explore these conflicts when there are equity and justice issues because of health disparities, unequal access to care, or restrictions on payment. Participants cases from their clinical practices will be used. The presentation and discussion will use current evidence about ethics and ethical reasoning and the core ethics documents of the profession

Course Objectives:
At the conclusion of this course the participant will be able to:

  1. Discuss physical therapist’s moral responsibilities to address social issues that affect the health of people served in practice.
  2. Demonstrate effective use of a systematic approach to ethical decision making.
  3. Apply the APTA Code of Ethics and Guide for Professional Conduct and other ethical principles to ethical issues encountered in physical therapy practice.
  4. Formulate an effective response to a commonly encountered ethical problem in physical therapy practice at the individual level and at the organizational and societal levels.

There are many networking opportunities in your district. Attend district meetings, town halls or Chapter and National activities.
