Abstract: The ethics literature in physiotherapy has long recognised the need to better understand the relationship between ethical reasoning and clinical decision-making in clinical practice. This paper proposes a model of clinical reasoning which demonstrates how ethical reasoning can be considered in a wider clinical-reasoning framework without reducing the complex, moral dimensions of ethical reasoning to merely logical and rational processes of clinical decision-making.
