PHTH 7112 - PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE IN PHYSICAL THERAPY II

[2 Credits]
Aspects of professional practice introduced in PHTH 7111 are expanded and applied. The topic of medical ethics is continued including the ethics of patient interactions and role boundaries. Students learn about disability and interacting with persons with disability as a clinician and as an advocate. Students are introduced to the laws and legal organization that govern the practice of physical therapy both nationally and those specific to the state of Louisiana. Clinical labs and case-based problems will be used in developing specific skills of legal documentation, patient interaction and communication, solving of legal and ethical conundrums, and to evaluate students’ behavioral outcomes.
