PROVISION OF SERVICE
I will provide ongoing service to you only after I have assessed
your needs and you, or a person designated to act for you,
understand and agree to a plan of
service, the results that may be expected from it,
and the cost of service.
I will base my plan of service on goals you, or a person
designated to act for you, have defined, and which enhance the
decisions you have made concerning
My first duty is loyalty to you. I will always provide services
based on your best interest, even if
this conflicts with my interests or the interests of others.
TERMINATION OF SERVICE
I will end service to you only after reasonable notice. I will
recommend a plan for you to continue
to receive the services as needed.
I will not substitute my judgment for yours unless I am acting
in the role of your guardian, appointed by a Court of Law, or
with your approval, or the approval of
someone designated to act for you.
I will hold in trust any confidence you give me, disclosing
information to others only with your
permission, or if I am compelled to do so by a belief that you
will be seriously harmed by my
silence, or if the laws of this State require me to do
I will refer you only to services and organizations I believe to
be appropriate and of good quality. I
will fully explain to you any business relationship I have
with any service I propose, and give you information on
alternatives, if at all possible, so
that you, or a person designated to act for you, can make an
informed decision to accept or reject the services I
recommend to you.
I will strive to ensure cooperation between all of the
individuals involved in providing
service and care to you.
I am fully qualified in my profession to provide the services I
undertake. I continue to improve my
skills and knowledge by participating in professional
development programs and maintaining certification and
licensing in my profession.
I will not promote or sanction any form of discrimination.
