Caring is a professional calling for physical therapists. Providing physical therapy services and supporting organizations that provide services to those without access to care for financial reasons, from a lack of availability of services, or in the event of a disaster are a moral and ethical obligation of physical therapists and physical therapist assistants and for the well-being of society. APTA's Code of Ethics for the Physical Therapist and Standards for Ethical Conduct for the Physical Therapist Assistant specify that APTA members provide pro bono physical therapy services and/or support organizations that meet the health needs of people who are economically disadvantaged, uninsured, or underinsured.
