Ethical issues are often perceived as something that isn’t encountered on an everyday basis.  However, there are real world examples that can happen every day!  Join us for a discussion of ethical dilemmas you might see on the spectrum of physical therapy practice and how you can utilize a decision making plan when these occur.

By the end of this presentation the learner will be able to:

  • Discuss the ethical principles in health care
  • Analyze case and professional examples for ethical dilemmas in everyday clinical practice
  • Choose a workable model for ethical decision making when the situation occurs

Please see below for a copy of the course brochure and registration form.
