Summary

Like all PBI Education offerings, this course is grounded in the premise that everyone has the potential to commit a boundary or ethics violation. Many health care professionals referred to this course have never learned the intricacies of the legal, regulatory, and ethical obligations of their professions. Through a comprehensive pre-course, participants become versed in those professional obligations and initiate the process of self-assessment.

Participants arrive at the seminar primed to examine their infractions. They will learn how they got to this point and why they are being held to account. At the end of the course they will develop their Personalized Protection Plan that elevates accountability in order to prevent recidivism.
