In providing services to the public, ACSLPA members are required to act in the best interests of their clients. Members are bound by the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics. ACSLPA’s current Standards of Practice were adopted by Council September 2015.
The Standards of Practice define the minimum level of professional performance that SLPs and audiologists are expected to demonstrate to ensure competent, safe and ethical practice. Each regulated member of ACSLPA is accountable for practicing in accordance with the Standards of Practice, regardless of role, practice area or practice setting.
Any breach of the Standards of Practice may constitute unprofessional conduct, as defined in the Health Professions Act.
