PDR now offers an audio-based online ethics CE course for Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs):
Ethical Considerations in Speech-Language Pathology is a new 1-hour audio continuing education (CE) course that examines ethical issues that SLPs may encounter in clinical practice.
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.
This ethics CE 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. Course #11-41 | 2021 | 53m audio + 40p handout | 10 posttest questions
This audio ethics CE course provides instant access to the mp3 audio file, the course handout, and the CE test. The CE test is open-book (you can print the test to mark your answers on it while listening to the course presentation).
