Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Ron Scott, JD, LLM, MSBA (Lebannon Valley College)
Description: This book is the result of an attempt to provide a comprehensive overview of legal and ethical issues affecting physical therapy practitioners. It is written by two physical therapy professionals, one of whom is a rehabilitation services coordinator, and the other a clinician-attorney. The text has seven chapters, a glossary, and an index.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an overview of legal and ethical issues in various physical therapy practice settings.
Audience: It is written for physical therapy students and clinicians.
Features: Chapter One primarily addresses foundational biomedical ethical principles, as well as basic legal concepts. A noteworthy model for ethical decision making is presented, as are several figures and worksheets. Chapter Two introduces case studies, which are tackled by both authors according to their respective areas of expertise. "A Model Definition for Physical Therapy" appears as an appendix to the chapter. Chapter Three includes a managed care contract list, which may be a good starting point for physical therapists contemplating contracting with managed care entities for employment. Chapter Four addresses a variegated range of topics. The authors' treatment of elder abuse is well done, as is discussion of Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) issues. Chapter Five addresses three topics: confidentiality, end-of-life issues, and restraint use. The case examples are well presented. Chapter Six focuses primarily on informed consent, with additional presentation of intellectual property, noncompete clauses, and the ADA. Chapter Seven deals with access issues and telemedicine, among other issues. The glossary of terms is easy to use, as is the index.
Assessment: This book is well-written and includes pertinent case examples for physical therapy students and providers. It is relatively easy to read, and would make a welcome addition to clinicians' professional libraries.

Booknews
Presents issues intended to introduce practitioners and students to ways of thinking about problems in law and ethics and the tools available for solving them, rather than addressing each potential issue that may arise in a clinical setting. Notes the new responsibilities and liabilities as physical therapists increasingly function as independent professionals within the health care community. Includes chapter-end questions and notes and a glossary without pronunciation. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
