Montana massage therapists plan events to raise awareness about the benefits of massage in health care.

The Montana Chapter of the American Massage Therapy Association[R] (AMTA) will be hosting a fundraiser dinner to raise awareness about the integration of massage into other health care specialties, such as nursing. The dinner will be held on Friday evening, October 14, 2005 at the Doubletree Edgewater Hotel in Missoula. A 6-hour Ethics workshop will be held on Saturday, October 15, 2005 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. The ethics class is suitable for anyone who does patient care and nurses are welcome. Please call Tina Wambeke, the Education Chair of the MT Chapter of the AMTA, at (406) 285-4263 or 285-6916 for more information about the dinner or the class.

The Ethics class is an experientially based approach to Ethics. We will examine principles and terminology that underlie professional ethical guidelines and how they apply to our work and personal sense of ethics. We will be drawing upon real ethical dilemmas from our work, such as exploring the difference between giving care and taking care. The class is not about learning a set of ethical precepts in order to avoid lawsuits. It is a heartfelt look at problems that arise in human relationships, and how to get help from your peers and how to provide an ethical context that is safe and nurturing for you and your patients.
