Ethical Issues and Decision Making for Rehab Professionals-
#3020 Ethical Issues and Decision Making for Rehab Professionals

DESCRIPTION

5 Contact Hours

This course intended for the Introductory level therapist, promotes a simplified hypothetical ethical model. Within this model, therapists can combine medical ethics and business ethics to reach a well thought out ethical decision. Although this model is simple in form, it encompasses the variety of complex issues in medical-business ethics.

This course was developed to educate and facilitate medical-business ethical behavior among Occupational and Physical therapy professions. The course is presented by Sheri L. Bjork, PT, MBA, owner of JS Consulting. You will find the instructor’s teaching methods are a mixture of business and practice, anecdotes and details, and she uses both realistic and academic situations.

Ethics is a complex subject. This course provides thought-provoking questions, comments and examples, and the author takes the liberty of playing ‘devils advocate’ when needed. Multiple case scenarios ask difficult questions and provide food for thought.

Availability: 365 days from registration, unless other agreement applies


COURSE GOAL

Participants will expand their knowledge of rehabilitation (Physical, Occupational and Speech) professional ethics codes. Using a simple yet powerful ethical decision-making model, the therapist will recognize an ethical dilemma, apply the model, utilize and balance both professional and legal documents and will practice through case scenarios to reach ethical outcomes.

OBJECTIVES

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to :

  • Apply a theoretical based ethical decision-making model
  • Identify laws and rules that govern rehabilitation professionals
  • Recognize when a business decision is not based in rehabilitation professional ethics
  • Analyze and interpret situations to determine if an ethical dilemma exists
  • Analyze and interpret situations using an ethical model
  • Apply each of the following as applicable to real life ethical situations: APTA Code of Ethics and Guide of Professional Conduct, AOTA Occupational Code of Ethics, or ASHA Code of Ethics
