Ethical dilemmas arise in our everyday practice. They can be between patient and therapist on an interpersonal level, within ourselves in struggling intrapersonally, within the interdisciplinary team or institution we are working in on an interprofessional or intra-organisational realm, or even related to "hot topics" in health- or socio-political fields. For some of these dilemmas it may be very challenging to finding a solution that respects all viewpoints, values and duties of the involved persons and institutions involved. For good ethical clinical decision making all healthcare practitioners should utilise a knowledge of ethics that includes an understanding of the underlying basis for ethical principles and professional frameworks for practice.


This programme of courses aims to help you identify and reflect on ethical issues in your everyday professional practice.


This programme consists of four separate online courses and an assignment:

  1. Ethical Principles and Values
  2. Frameworks for Ethical Decision Making
  3. Applied Ethical Reasoning
  4. Exploring Ethical Issues
  5. Final assignment

Target audience

This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy professionals, clinicians and students.
