Ethics and Consequences


Course Description

Course Description:

It is the responsibility of all healthcare professionals to be able to know and identify the code of ethics of their respective national association, their state board and their corporate policies and protocols.  Our ethical responsibilities as clinical professionals range from providing the optimal care for each client’s best interest to maintaining their confidentiality and assuring accurate billing practices.  In addition, we are held accountable to our organizations policies and procedures which are often federally mandated, to include further ethical requirements and responsibilities for working within the given guidelines.

This course reviews the required code of ethics for occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists and massage therapists. In addition, we will review expectations that are often required by state licensure boards and the healthcare organization’s specific ethical issues, for which we must be compliant, to prevent serious negative consequences.  It all comes together with an evidence-based decision-making model to utilize in a variety of workplace scenarios.
