PHTH 633 - Management of Ethical Practice

Credits: Three (3)
This course is designed to prepare students for managerial and administrative situations, which they will face as they begin to practice physical therapy. The course views management issues from a macroscopic to a microscopic perspective, and utilizes the LAMP document skills required by all practicing clinicians. Students first learn about the health care environment today and the delivery of health care within contemporary systems of organizations. The course explores the external pressures facing healthcare access and delivery today, and how these relate to the practice of physical therapy in the 21st century. The six pillars that support the concept of a “doctoring profession” as outlined in the APTA Vision 2020 also are explored.
Prerequisite: PHTH-644; For PT Students
