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.
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
