Abstract

Without an adherence to ethical standards, a practitioner will have little to offer a client. A professional person should be distinguished from a layperson not only by technical knowledge but also by an observance of professional ethics. Healing prospers in an environment where the health professional can be trusted for their technical skill and also for their personal honesty and respect for the client. A concern for ethical standards will help your prac­tice to prosper, and will avoid the negative impact of disciplinary action by a statutory or professional body.
