In providing services to the public, ACSLPA members are required to act in the best interests of their clients. Members are bound by the Code of Ethics and ACSLPA’s Standards of Practice. ACSLPA’s current Code of Ethics was adopted by Council September 2017.
The Code of Ethics outlines the ethical conduct expectations for both professions. It applies at all times to all regulated members regardless of their practice setting, length of time in practice, or role (e.g., direct service to the public, research, education, administration, consultation or any other area of practice).
The Code of Ethics states the minimum expectations for professional conduct that SLPs and audiologists should demonstrate to ensure competent, safe, ethical practice.
Any breach of the Code of Ethics may constitute unprofessional conduct, as defined in the Health Professions Act.
