Come hear these two highly knowledgeable and experienced practitioners discuss real life ethical dilemmas and how to apply the five standards: Act with integrity; Always provide a high standard of service; Act in a way that promotes trust in the profession; Treat others with respect; Take responsibility in professional practice.
