In 2003, we led a working conference on leadership in ethics education for physical therapy and occupational therapy entitled, "Dreamcatchers and the Common Good: Allied Health Leadership in Generational Health and Ethics." The institute brought together 25 leaders in ethics education in physical therapy and occupational therapy for a 3-day working conference of experts. In this paper, we discuss our work as part of an interdisciplinary community of ethics educators who have been grappling with ethics education in rehabilitation over the last 7 years. We reflect on our collaborative work and then propose components of a moral foundation required for continued interprofessional dialogue and work.
