Ethical Decision-Making: A Public Health Emergency and Unprecedented Challenges
Theresa H. Rodgers, MA, CCC-SLP, ASHA Fellow

ETHICS COURSE
0.1 ASHA CEU

Response to the COVID-19 pandemic evolved rapidly with the public health emergency forcing speech-language pathologists to change the very manner in which services are delivered. Regulatory agencies and professional organizations provided needed guidance including information on changes to long-standing professional practice standards precipitated by the pandemic. Personal protective equipment (PPE), billing and reimbursement, informed consent, supervision, telepractice, confidentiality, and Individualized Education Plan (IEP) compliance are some of the topics which presented dilemmas and potentially ethical challenges for speech-language pathology professionals. This session will highlight information on these topics including scenarios which will be analyzed and deliberated by participants.
