Event Description


Physical therapists are now a doctoral educated health care professional and serve an important role in helping patients in our aging society regain and maintain their physical abilities. In addition, they serve to rehabilitate sports and exercise enthusiasts from athletic injuries.

Physical therapists provide a truly “hands on” relationship with the patient as they carry out their healing component of physical medicine. In addition, physical therapy modalities overlap with several other health care practitioners who use the identical billing codes to bill for their services, too. This patient relationship and billing practices places physical therapists in a unique position of vulnerability to claims of misconduct.

In the context of these doctor-patient relationships, what are the top legal and ethical violations against physical therapists? Identify and understand the most common complaints against physical therapists which may have catastrophic consequences and career ending impact.

Why Should You Attend:

Physical therapists are expanding their roles as health care practitioners working in today’s diverse, fast-changing, multidisciplinary health care environment. The state’s authority and power over the physical therapist often presents challenges to that professional that are not easy to navigate.

Physical therapists must adhere to many standards of state law which act as a guide to physical therapy practice, and govern their professional practices, including the doctor-patient relationship. Yet once a complaint is received and investigated by a state agency, the physical therapist is left with an uncertain process to handle the state action.

Learn to identify and understand the most common violations of law against physical therapists. This allows the practitioner to defend against such state actions.

Areas Covered in this Webinar:

This webinar offers an objective, thorough review of the legal and ethical issues of state licensure board complaints against physical therapists.

Today’s health care system involves many health care professionals who work together for the common goal of the patient. This includes physicians, nurses, physical therapists, and others.

Like physicians and nurses, physical therapists as health care practitioners obtained an education, passed applicable examinations, completed professional training, and hold a license to practice their chosen profession of physical therapy. The license to practice is issued by the state agency which has exclusive jurisdiction over this health care practitioner.

Thereafter, the state’s legal authority and power over the physical therapist often presents challenges to that professional that are not easy to navigate. Their governing state agency routinely handles, investigates, and dismisses-- or prosecutes -- alleged violations of law that can be career ending for the physical therapist if pursued. But that process takes time with many steps necessary for due process of law.

• Sources of legal authority for the state to take disciplinary action against physical therapists – what statutes and administration exist to regulate this aspect of physical medicine
