Take an engaging approach to real-world problems with the only book of its kind written for physical therapists. This groundbreaking text breaks new ground again. It's now three books in one...a comprehensive exploration of ethics as well as of professionalism and cultural diversity. The thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded 2nd Edition offers Physical Therapists the tools they need as they confront the ethical dilemmas and moral controversies that they will encounter in professional practice. At the same time, it stimulates reflection on the moral significance of a therapist's work, a neglected area of study. Stories drawn from real-life cases identify and define a broad range of ethical problems, and show readers how to resolve them. An emphasis on day-to-day issues makes ethical and philosophical concepts easy to understand. Each chapter begins with selected principles from the APTA's Code of Ethics and Guide for Professional Conduct. New cases studies, new illustrations, and expanded discussions of ethical issues make the 2nd Edition even more essential. This title uses a new, three-part organization, Professional Core Concepts, Caring and Respect, and Organization and Administration. It offers a new chapter, Caring, Character, and Principles. It features expanded coverage of resolving ethical dilemmas the principles of biomedical ethics the ethics of care cultural competency spirituality and the complex interface between professional ethics and administrative ethics in the health care setting. It emphasizes the application of theory to clinical practice with 11 more case studies, all PT-specific. It provides new coverage of recent advances in neuroscience relevant to moral theory. It presents current research on how empathy and moral development correlate with clinical competence. It also uses case studies to bring to life ethical and philosophical concepts that can be hard to grasp. It explores the origin of four types of ethical issues: compliance issues, moral disagreements, moral vagueness, and ethical dilemmas. It stimulates class conversations with discussion questions that consider the practical and moral significance of the therapist's work.
