Delaware Speech-Language-Hearing Association presents

An Evening Meeting on Ethics in Rehabilitation
with Cathy Ciolek, DPT, FAPTA

October 27, 2020
6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

Course Description
Rehabilitation professionals participate in mandatory ethics training but may fail to identify ethical challenges in daily practice. Issues of conflict among providers/family & balancing risk/autonomy can challenge ethical principles yet may not “feel” like ethical issues on the surface. This interactive presentation used a case-based approach to review autonomy & paternalism in healthcare & justice.

Learning Objectives
1) Participants will describe the key ethical principles in healthcare
2) Participants will analyze case examples for ethical dilemmas in rehabilitation practice
3) Participants will recognize potential conflict with individual risk versus autonomy and paternalism in healthcare decisions.
