Ethical Boundaries: The Zone of Helpfulness in The Professional Caregiver & Patient Relationship
Length: 1 Hour


Boundaries are the invisible line between the patient/ family and the healthcare provider. Professional boundaries may vary depending on the practice setting and license the professional holds. Maintaining boundaries involves understanding the importance of staying in the zone of helpfulness and the consequences of overstepping. This interactive program examines the ethical dilemmas that arise regarding boundaries and how our professional codes of ethics guide us in maintaining professionalism with empathy. Join us for a lively discussion on creating and maintaining the appropriate “zone” for your practice.

This content is suitable for both beginning and intermediate levels.  There is an introduction to reviewing professional boundaries which is necessary and appropriate for beginners.  It also applies to intermediate levels as it expands upon the introductory level, focusing on the ethical dilemmas that arise and how-to best work to maintain these boundaries.
