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.
