Staying up to date on all the parameters of ethics within the healthcare setting seems to be more complicated each year. As clinical professionals, we are first responsible to upholding our respective code of ethics and standards of practice. But we are also held accountable to our organizations policies and procedures which are often federally mandated, to include additional ethical requirements and responsibilities to work within the given guidelines.
This course covers the required code of ethics for occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech language pathologists and massage therapists. In addition, we will review topics that are further required per specific state licensure boards and the healthcare organization’s specific ethical issues, for which we must be compliant. It all comes together with an evidence based decision-making model to utilize in a variety of workplace scenarios.
