"Got Ethics?" (3 CE hours)

We invite you to join us from 6:15 - 9:15 pm on Thursday, April 16th for a virtual 3 hour CE presentation on "Got Ethics?".

While the vast majority of healthcare providers are ethical and provide high-quality care, the few who abuse the system are placing patients’ health at risk and costing payers and consumers billions of dollars. Unfortunately, headline-grabbing fraud and abuse cases have brought the PT profession under scrutiny by the federal government and payers. The resulting number of complex regulations has increased the administrative burden on all physical therapists. This course fulfills the 3 hour Ethics requirement for license renewal by the State of Illinois.  Since this is a virtual live webinar, this counts as "live" CE.

This course is being offered for FREE to IPTA members. Non members can pay $65 to participate in this virtual presentation.

This course will be presented virtually on April 16th using the Zoom platform. You will have to download the free zoom platform to your PC, MAC, iOS, or Android PRIOR to the presentation to utilize its capabilities.  Plan to sign in at 6:00 pm and enter your name when prompted.


If you have not received an email by 10:00AM on Thursday, April 16th, that includes the ZOOM meeting ID, PLEASE CONTACT THE OFFICE!  You will not be able to join the ZOOM meeting without the meeting ID.


Following completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand basic ethical and legal principles
  • Understand the integrity terminology
  • Understand the Illinois Practice Act, especially in relation to Direct Access environments and patient care
  • Understand common fraud and abuse laws
  • Understand APTA’s integrity in practice campaign and resources
  • Use the RIPS model to analyze current ethical issues


In order to receive CE certificate for this presentation, attendees will be emailed the morning of April 16th with a link to complete a short quiz and course evaluation following.
