Ethical Considerations in Speech-Language Pathology

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Ethical Considerations in Speech-Language Pathology is a 1-hour audio continuing education (CE) course that provides general information on ethical behavior.

Participants will review the types of mistakes made and the importance of honesty and rule-following in practice. The course highlights the differentiation between ‘Principles of Ethics’ and the ‘Rule of Ethics’ and discusses the four general principles of the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA) Code of Ethics.

Participants will look at the ethical responsibilities they have to themselves, colleagues, students, and clients as they consider their role in clinical practice (including tele-practice), research, and supervision. The course further discusses the link between research and ethical clinical practice, highlighting criteria that may help the clinician distinguish between scientific and pseudoscientific treatment claims.

The course gives an overview of the factors that may drive dishonest or unethical behavior and describes how to use the Consensus Model for decision making. Finally, the participant is given the opportunity to apply their learning as they review case studies, ponder possible solutions to the ethical dilemmas presented, and review answers to common questions regarding the case.
