Ethical Challenges in the Academic and Clinical Settings

Physical therapists in academia and at the clinical sites are often challenged by ethical situations in their multiple roles as educator, consultant, researcher, clinician, and administrator. The intersection between the academic institution and the clinical sites adds further complexity to the challenges and may add legal issues to the mix. In this session, the speakers will present cases based on real contemporary situations and will challenge participants to reach decisions that lead to moral potency to benefit students, faculty, patients, clinical sites, and the profession. The APTA Code of Ethics, AAUP Statement on Professional Ethics, and legal constraints of FERPA and ADA will impact the discussion. Cases will cover a variety of topics, including clinical supervision, delegation, boundary issues, academic integrity, research, clinical practice, confidentiality, legal requirements, and secondary reporting. How do we all strengthen our profession by not only knowing what is right but ultimately doing what is right?
