APTA's podcast, Revised Code and Standards: One Year Anniversary, outlines helpful resources that are available on the Code and Standards. These resources note that the updated Code and Standards are intended to provide greater clarification of existing ethical obligations. Although various words have changed, many of the obligations are the same. In addition, the Code and Standards have been revised to more accurately reflect and respond to the complexities of the contemporary health care environment. The updated Code and Standards go beyond abstract principles to provide clear guidance for ethical behavior.
