Ethics and Professional Issues:
   Sexual Harassment Prevention Training

Presented by Rehab Connections   


This workshop meets TWO continuing education requirements, ethics in practice and sexual harassment prevention training, with a focus on key concepts for practical application to clinical practice, such as:

The new CE requirement for sexual harassment prevention training is only 1 hour however considering our many roles with coworkers, patients, and students; challenges to recognizing and reporting misconduct in our variety of settings; and the necessity for integrity and dignity in practice; we believe combining sexual harassment prevention and ethics is important for rehab professionals.

 Scenarios for discussion     Meets new license renewal requirements     Evidence-informed
