Tumwater – Ethics: Risk vs. Reward — Massage on the Ethical Edge

Ethics: Risk vs. Reward — Massage on the Ethical Edge
The rules around massage in the state of Washington continue to evolve. More than ever you need to make sure you know the updates on draping, breast massage, record keeping, etc. Some of these changes are due to the nature of complaints filed against massage therapists here in our state on these very issues, and more changes are coming.
How do we work with our clients in an environment that’s not only changing but that also sees an increasing number of complaints being filed with the Department of Health against us? And, the Department of Health is not our only concern. There are civil and even criminal risks for us and risks with insurance carriers wanting refunds because of fraudulent practices. And, this doesn’t even speak to HIPAA implications and employment practices that lead you to be terminated based on a mere complaint.
Meanwhile, have you heard of the Meehan Bill? This bill, if it becomes law, will require massage therapists and business owners to notify law enforcement of suspected sexual misconduct all across the US and even post policies on these issues in their businesses. Why is this bill being considered and what will it mean for your massage practice if it does become law?
This 4-hour CE class is like ethics on steroids and takes an in-depth and candid look at these changes and prepares you for what lies ahead.
