Webinar: Enhancing Service Delivery Across the Continuum

As the professional landscape continues to evolve, audiologists and speech-language pathologists must provide high-quality, skilled services while at the same time serving a greater number of individuals and demonstrating the value of the services that they provide. This webinar explores current trends in the professions and offers advice to help professionals manage their workload, make the most of their time, and best serve new and existing clients, patients, and students. Specifically, the webinar will discuss practicing at the top of the license, working with assistants, using the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) framework to document services, exploring and implementing a range of service delivery options, and collaborating with an interprofessional team. The webinar will also point to ASHA’s resources to help professionals achieve these goals.
