1.0 CE Ethics Credit

Free for UPA members! This is a UPA member-benefit offering.

As clinicians, we are inundated with everchanging systems, standards of care, and increased practice expectations which can lead us to feel overwhelmed and uncertain. There's a tension between the immediate practical demands of an ethical quandary and the recommended 15+ step decision-making models we learned in graduate school, making it challenging to discern what actually matters most. This lunchtime seminar will review recent licensing complaint data summarizing Utah trends and highlight priority areas for preventative ethical practice. An efficient checklist with the crucial steps in a dilemma will be shared to strengthen, simplify and add confidence to your decision-making processes. The second half will also provide opportunities for Q&A, discussion, and practical resources.
