Speech Pathology Australis is seeking the consumer perspective to assist the review of their Code of Ethics
The Association undertakes a major review of the Code every 10 years, to ensure currency and relevance for the profession and broader community. Regular review ensures that the role and function of the Ethics Board and the Association’s Ethics procedures are linked with the Code of Ethics.
To date, the review has achieved the preparation of a Scoping Review report, which identified common themes in other professional codes of ethics /conduct and examined recent reviews undertaken by other organisations, a member survey and member focus groups.
The review has now progressed to undertaking consultation with external stakeholders. Speech Pathology Australia is seeking consumer participation in a 90 minute focus group to be held via videoconference in August. The meeting date has yet to be confirmed but is anticipated to be either 19 August or 29 August, depending on availability of stakeholders.
The discussion topics for the focus group will include trends and themes in the provision of ethical professional allied health services identified in consultation to date.
To register your interest to attend, please contact Trish Johnson, Manager Ethics and Professional Issues at Speech Pathology Australia via email at firstname.lastname@example.org by COB on Wednesday 14 August 2019.
