Investigators compared moral reasoning between OT and physical therapy students and practitioners with the Defining Issues Test-2. Investigators found a significant difference in consolidated (set) versus transitional (forming) patterns of moral reasoning in practitioners versus students. The difference occurred between second-year students and practitioners, suggesting fieldwork experiences enhanced moral reasoning patterns. Implications include providing ethics education support during fieldwork experiences.
