De bono (1933) quoted ?Effectiveness without values is a tool without a purpose?. Came to my mind when I first read Professionalism in Physical Therapy: Core Values published by American Physical Therapy Association. I believe that core values play a major role in determining one?s standing in the society, either as an Individual or an Organization. APTA (2003) stated that in 2002 eighteen physical therapists based on their expertise in physical therapy practice, education and research were invited by APTA?s Education Division to participate in a consensus based conference to develop consensus based document on professionalism that include Core values of the profession and its indicators that are fully consistent with core values and professional education matrix that includes educational outcomes, examples of terminal behavioral objectives, and examples of instructional objectives for classroom and clinical practice.
Seven core values have been identified to incorporate many values and attributes that are part of physical therapist professionalism. APTA developed a core value self-assessment tool for physical therapist behaviors and how they reflect professionalism in their daily practice.
As a part of post professional DPT program I was asked to take the google survey on APTA Professionalism in Physical Therapy: Core Values
