Ethics Content Development Project

Description [edit | edit source]

This project aims to develop content for the section in Physiopedia. This content will also be used as part of the Ethics Courses in Physioplus.

We intend to populate the site with practical, credible and thought-provoking information on all aspects of Ethics and how it relates to our physiotherapy practice where ever we may be in the world.

Anyone is welcome to join in this project. You will be joining people from all over the world in contributing evidence based articles to create an evidence based reference on Ethics. In return for your efforts you will receive a certificate of completion to help you evidence your learning through your involvement with this project.
