Coding and Reimbursement Resources

Evidence-Based Practice

Compendium of Evidenced-Based Guidelines and Systematic Reviews
In the summer of 2005, staff of ASHA's National Center for Evidence-Based Practice in Communication Disorders (N-CEP) embarked upon a project to identify and obtain clinical practice guidelines from all over the world related to audiology and/or speech-language pathology. As noted elsewhere on this site, clinical practice guidelines, when tied directly to a systematic review of scientific evidence, can be an invaluable tool in helping clinicians to make the best decisions with and for their clients.

Management Issues in Health Care

Special Interest Groups

Four Special Interest Groups (SIGs) (6, 7, 8, and 9) focus on audiology issues. SIGs offer continuing education opportunities at no additional cost for affiliates (members in the SIGs).
