6 - 8 pm +pre-course readings (4 contact hours)

This four-hour blended course, approved by the WPTA to fulfill the state's 4 hour ethics requirement, will provide an overview of professional documents as well as Wisconsin statutes as they pertain to physical therapy. Participants will complete pre-course readings to address three assigned cases and a pre-quiz (2 hours will be on your own time). Learners will actively engage in the online, synchronous session with opportunities to reflect on and discuss the cases and share questions with course instructors and peers. Topics include FERPA, assessment using the Clinical Performance Instrument, conflicts of interest, and addressing potential signs of abuse. Each participant will receive three cases to read and questions to answer prior to attending the course.

The registration deadline is Monday, October 5 in order to provide time to complete the pre-course work. A brief 15-20 minute District business meeting will follow the course.
