Professional Diversity: How Your Unique Perspective Can Improve Clinical Decision-Making, Free Case Studies Course

Please add only one copy of each free Case Study course to your cart.
This course is available for free for ASHA members from July 1–31, 2017.
What are your proudest professional accomplishments? Which clients have you affected most significantly? What distinguishing personal characteristics allow you to make a difference for your clients? Each of us has a unique clinical perspective – informed by our individual background – that can be the critical factor in solving client needs. When we collaborate with colleagues and other professionals, we use diverse perspectives to ensure the best outcomes. The more diversity of backgrounds we have within the professions, the abler we are to serve an increasingly diverse population – and the better our collective clinical decision-making can be.

This course will address how the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of SLPs and audiologists can enhance problem-solving and service provision. The course will also discuss the value of ongoing self-assessment and continuous expansion of our own diversity and cultural knowledge.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • describe three areas of practice in which diversity plays a role in improved service delivery
  • identify three specific populations that would increase diversity in the professions
  • engage in self-exploration and collaboration with colleagues, using your unique perspective to address challenging clinical scenarios
