Learning Objectives: At the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

    1. Participants will be able to name three key ethical issues to assess when determining: 1) whether they are involved in dual / multiple relationships or conflicts of interest; and 2) the appropriateness of continuing treatment despite the presence of dual / multiple relationships or conflicts of interest.
