Key Strategic Initiative

The ABCs Canons of Ethical Conduct become recognized as the principal standards which govern the professional, ethical and moral integrity of those individuals and facilities engaged in the delivery of orthotic and prosthetic care.

What is Professional Discipline?

The ABC has established the Professional Discipline Program to promote and maintain the highest standards of patient care and ethical behavior. The Code of Ethics applies to all ABC credentialed persons and accredited facilities.

Our profession is "self-policed," meaning we rely on the patients and peer network to help us maintain the highest standards. We have an active committee that responds to and evaluates all complaints against ABC credentialed individuals. Those complaints found to have merit can result in various disciplinary actions ranging from warnings to revocation of the credential.
