Hello Everyone,

We have exciting news to share! Patricia Crane, DPT, CLT, Cert. MDT, FAAOMPT, is now collaborating with us to teach her Ethics course for Pennsylvania. Many of you were probably wondering what a manual therapy/manipulation-based CEU company is doing teaching an Ethics course. Well, thankfully we have been able to add this to our programming to further diversify our course spectrum, as well as provide those of you who practice in PA with a high-quality, live option for this mandatory course for license renewal.

“Trish”, as she likes to be called, is a good friend and colleague of ours, who recently completed her Fellowship in Manual Therapy. She is an excellent PT and even better Manual Therapist. Below is her bio:


Trish Crane, DPT, CLT, Cert. MDT, FAAOMPT graduated from Long Island University with her MSPT in 2003.  She later received her DPT in 2006 from Widener University.  Trish became a certified lymphedema therapist in 2004, became certified in the McKenzie method in 2005, and completed a manual therapy fellowship through Regis University in 2013.  Trish also serves as an adjunct faculty member at Harcum College in the PTA program and lab assists at Temple University in the musculoskeletal labs.


As you can see, she is quite accomplished! We are very happy to have her collaborate with us to teach her Ethics course. The course title, description, and outline are listed below:


Ethical Decision Making Process in Physical Therapy

“Ethical Decision Making Process in Physical Therapy” is a 2 hour course designed to assist physical therapists with management of ethical dilemmas faced in the workplace.  Upon completion of this course, participants will have a better understanding of the history of ethics in physical therapy, be able to define the RIPS model (Realm, Individual process, Situation) of ethical decision making, and apply the RIPS framework to ethical scenarios. This course fulfills the PA licensure requirements for continuing education in Ethics and Law.

Course outline:

First hour:  Description of the history of ethical decision making

-Introduction to the Realm, Individual process, Situation (RIPS) model of ethical decision making

Second hour: Application of the RIPS model via case scenarios.


Hopefully, many of you can join us for our upcoming Ethics course in Lancaster, PA. And those of you who cannot, please stay tuned to our website, as we will very likely hold 1-2 more courses in Fall 2014 in either the Lehigh Valley and/or Philadelphia areas.
