Physical therapists and physical therapists assistants are required to make ethical decisions every day while treating patients. This course is designed to provide licensed physical therapist and physical therapist assistants guidance in ethical decision making and provide resources to help guide PTs and PTAs through the decision making process. This course will include facilitated discussion among participants regarding ethical practice and decision making in the physical therapy environment. Participants will discuss ethics in regards to how challenges present themselves in the realm of everyday physical therapy practice in a variety of settings and understand any nuances to ethics in health care versus other business settings. Learning different methods in how to handle ethical cases will also be discussed. Participants will then apply those principles presented to a variety of case scenarios.

Learning Objectives:
 - Participants will be able to define to what professional ethics we are held accountable
 - Participants will be able to define key terms
 - Recognize an ethical situation
 - Participants will learn how to utilize the APTA Code of Ethics and Standards of Ethical Conduct for the PTA in resolving ethical decisions
 - Participants will work with colleagues in applying the principles of ethical decision making to actual ethical situations
 - Evaluate real life situations and determine the proper course of action from an ethical perspective, maintaining patient safety and will evaluate the effect unethical practice              may have on the patient and oneself
 - Learn how to refer to the NJ State Rules and Regulations to guide in making medical-legal decisions

This 2.5 credit course will be presented in both a lecture format as well as through interactive case discussions. The attendees will be expected to be active participants during this portion of the session.
