Constrained Physical Therapist Practice: An Ethical Case Analysis of Recommending Discharge Placement From the Acute Care Setting

Constrained Physical Therapist Practice: An Ethical Case Analysis of Recommending Discharge Placement From the Acute Care Setting | Sports ethics | Scoop.it

Constrained practice is routinely encountered by physical therapists and may limit the physical therapist's primary moral responsibility-which is to help the patient to become well again. Ethical practice under such conditions requires a certain moral character of the practitioner. The purposes of this article are: (1) to provide an ethical analysis of a typical patient case of constrained clinical practice, (2) to discuss the moral implications of contrained clinical practice, and (3) to identify key moral principles and virtues fostering ethical physical therapist practice.

The" Wooding" definition of Success breeds winning in more areas the sports. With high moral standards and ethical practices he makes success about the dedication of doing your best instead of winning at all cost. 

Dillon Fury's curator insight, September 10, 2014 12:47 PM

Winning the game is not everything. Being successful is not defined by who won the game either.

Is more productivity worth taking drugs? I think not.  

Jamison Fausett's curator insight, February 8, 2014 12:12 PM

We now live in the world of, if you don't like it about yourself, change it! Not the old fashioned way through mental discipline, but through means of surgical and medication. I too, have been subject to practice through medication after my brain injury on active duty. Yes, it does make the symptoms less severe but what we know of long term use to the great human body, is unknown and could be under fire some time in the future years.

Ethical issues and sports medicine

Ethical issues and sports medicine | Sports ethics | Scoop.it
In today’s sports medicine arena, this definition is not so clear. The traditional physician-patient relationship now has become, at the least, a triad—doctor-patient-team relationship. In some cases, the financial “health” of the patient threatens to cloud the picture.

The priority in treating a child’s sports injury is pretty clear when the child’s physical health is the first priority of all interested parties. But what about the scholarship-level high-school athlete whose ticket out of an impoverished background or means to a college education is his or her athletic ability? What about the professional basketball player in game 7 of the final round of the playoffs? Does the Hippocratic rule—the basic tenet of all of medicine—change? When does the black and white of clinical sports medicine turn a shade of gray?

Sideline and locker room injections are routinely performed in the elite college and professional arenas to facilitate participation of the individual athlete. Where and how the line is drawn will be the ethical footprint for future sports medicine professionals. Should the relationship between the physician and the injured athlete become a team sport with multiple participants?

Alexander Ellis's curator insight, February 16, 2014 12:58 PM

The hippocratic rule/oath taken by physicians is at times neglected to help the athlete succeed when their health may be in jeopardy.  The oath is one that a physician swears to treat a patient as if they were treating oneself and being responsible for that patient at all times. Athletes will do anything to stay in competition and it is the physician's duty to make the right decision, no matter what following consequence may take place.
