Ethics Surrounding Interprofessional Care
Interprofessional healthcare is a collaborative approach to patient care where health care providers focus on goals that align with the patient’s needs. Interprofessional healthcare stretches beyond interdisciplinary or intradisciplinary care in that a variety of health professions work toward the same goals versus discipline specific goals being shared amongst the various providers. Ethical issues arise when resource allocation becomes a concern, identification of what is “best for the patient” is not agreed upon, and when differing interpretations of regulations are applied to patient care.
This online ethics course provides a case situation in which a young man with Down Syndrome interacts with a variety of health care providers over his lifespan. Participants will interact with the material in a variety of ways.
This course is designed to meet the needs of multiple health care providers in regards to making ethical decisions in the clinic. However, the primary audience is the physical therapy profession.
At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Value individuals of other professions to maintain a climate of mutual respect and shared values.
- Use the knowledge of one’s own role and those of other professions to appropriately assess and address the health care needs of patients and to promote and advance the health of populations.
- Communicate with patients, families, communities, and professionals in health and other fields in a responsive and responsible manner that supports a team approach to the promotion and maintenance of health and the prevention and treatment of disease.
- Apply relationship-building values and the principles of team dynamics to perform effectively in different team roles to plan, deliver, and evaluate patient/population centered care and population health programs and policies that are safe, timely, efficient, effective, and equitable.
