Case-Based Ethics Education in Physical Therapy
Venglar, Mollie; Theall, Michael
Journal of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v7 n1 p64-76 May 2007
Physical therapist students often think ethics content to be less relevant than other course material. The purpose of this study was to assess whether changing from lecture to case-based method, would impact ethics awareness and integration. In focus groups, students in the case-based course reported greater perceived value of the ethics content and felt that the material was easier to integrate into practice, while students in lecture-based course reported that content should be compressed into a shorter period of time and did not integrate it as effectively. The model was also effective in improving critical thinking in clinical practice situations. (Contains 1 table.)
