Product Overview

Occupational therapy practitioners enter the profession with a strong sense of morality and justice and a desire to do good in the world, but they are quickly confronted with a health care system in which ethical principles conflict daily, and where they must make decisions regarding what ethical principles and professional values to prioritize. Taking the approach of applied ethics, which focuses on providing tools for working through and solving ethical problems as they emerge, this practical text is critical for ethical, high-quality occupational therapy service delivery.

Aligned with the AOTA Code of Ethics, this book aims to provide help and resources to occupational therapy practitioners managing ethical problems, and prepare students to face daily ethical challenges. Comprised of foundational chapters plus new and updated Advisory Opinions from AOTA’s Ethics Commission, Everyday Ethics & Occupational Therapy takes readers through a wide range of topics, realistic case examples, tips, and thoughtful analyses to assist practitioners in making ethical decisions.
