Professional Boundaries - A Health Professionals Guide - PDC20094

The relationship between the health care professional and their client is essentially based on trust. These relationships can become quite close and sometimes it is difficult to draw the precise lines for professional behaviour when we are sometimes very involved in a client’s care. If you are a health professional, you are expected to recognise which behaviours may cross and/or avoid the crossing the line of professionalism. This online micro-credential will give you the skills to assist in recognising the lines of appropriate professional behaviour while maintaining good client care. As a micro-credential, this course gives you a certificate of completion and a digital badge to display in your profile or share on social media.
