Kay Bene, LMT, NCTMB
This was an excellent course. It described the complex subject of documentation, insurance and responsibility very, very well. I enjoyed reading the material and thought the test was excellent and very well constructed.
Cynthia Frey, LMT, NCTMB
Having taken ethics courses every year for 16 years, I was thrilled to find a course that was far outside of something I could have taught. Skimming the test before reading the text, I saw questions I could not confidently guess the answers to. Thank you for a course for those of us who are bored with basic courses which focus on common boundaries and professionalism. I would recommend this course to anyone needing an ethics course who is interested in legalities and interacting with the medical community.
S. Cash, LMBT
This is a valuable course to help massage therapist and healthcare practitioners have a better understanding of law and documentation from an ethical perspective. The information on professional liability insurance was extremely informative. Thank you for an inexpensive ethics class that is applicable to one's practice!
Anne Edstrom, LMT
This was very informative and it definitely reminded me of certain issues within my practice that can be improved upon. By doing so, I will not only be of greater benefit to my clients, but I will be protecting myself. Thank you for your clear and concise course!!
William J. Hout, LMT, BCMTB
Good and useful information, although topic of insurance is not particularly interesting, no matter who the presenter. This course, however, did offer much needed, valuable guidance.
