Courses that explore ethics in occupational therapy

One of our values at OT Potential is to “do justice” and help create a world that is more equitable and humane. That’s why it’s so important to us to offer courses that help you develop your understanding of ethics in occupational therapy.

Our podcast-based courses are based on the most influential OT journal articles from the past 5 years. And, ethics comes up often, as some of our profession’s brightest minds are focused on advancing alignment in our values. 

Here are our 5 ethics courses, under the AOTA Code of Ethics core value that they do a deep dive into:

  1. Altruism 
  2. Equality
  1. Freedom
  2. Justice
  1. Dignity

  3. Prudence 

To take one of our courses, all you need to do is listen to the episode of the OT Potential Podcast and then join the OT Potential Club to take a test and generate a certificate.
