Podcast: Payment, Policy, and You: Ethics and Best Practices
Listening Time — 40:05
Value. Data. Ethics. Professionalism. Patient-centered.
These are all things today’s clinicians must account for in all settings, but what does it mean for you as current students and future clinicians?
In this episode, we talked with APTA payment and regulatory staff expert Kara Gainer, and physical therapists Bud Langham and Hannah Johnson on what students should know about the health care landscape, payment, and ethical practice, and included advice on things like documentation, ethical decision-making resources, and how to navigate tough conversations all while providing quality care to your patients.
Here’s our conversation with Kara, Bud, and Hannah.

This is a rewarding experience that many students have taken advantage of and this year, you can too!
