One (1) Home Study Continuing Education Ethics Credit (75% score or higher required)
In Episode 14, John welcomes Dr. Sam Knapp back to the podcast. Sam was fresh off his Lifetime Achievement Award in Ethics Education from the American Psychological Association. After John's first attempt at listener mail, the topic moves toward ethics education and ways to contemplate positive ethics. Rather than looking at remedial ethics or the ethics floor, John and Sam give plenty of examples about striving for the ethical ceiling. The focus on quality enhancement strategies grew out of risk management strategies. From a quality enhancement perspective, Sam and John give several examples of what may trigger the need for quality enhancement strategies. They also review four quality enhancement strategies: 1) consultation, 2) empower collaboration, 3) documentation, and 4) redundant protections. Sam and John also talk about psychologists' emotional reactions to patients.
