Abstract: BACKGROUND Healthcare professionals have certain professional, legal, and ethical obligations that they must fulfill with each patient interaction. Though professional and legal obligations may vary between fields of practice, the core ethical responsibility remains the same: provide just health care1. This requires that healthcare professionals are aware of systemic and institutional factors that lead to disparity and discrimination in the provision of health services1. Disability is a complex construct that can be related to various factors related to health condition as well as social and environmental factors that influence participation. This complexity results in varying definitions; the ICF model of disability was used in this research2. Abstract PDF Link: How to cite: Senczyszyn A, Duncan J.C.
