Health care organizations have experienced many significant changes in the past 10 years to satisfy the challenges of a modifying reimbursement system. The clinical supervision of speech-language pathologists practicing within this new environment has required corresponding changes in order to meet clinical and patient needs.
Historically, ASHA has set practice standards for its members with well-developed guidelines and expectations for clinical supervision of individuals at varied levels of experience. As health care institutions undergo change in staffing levels and organization of their supervisory structure, those responsible for the clinical supervision of speech-language pathologists must ensure that the quality and quantity of supervision remain high. This article describes the administrative changes in an acute rehabilitation hospital in a large urban area and the resultant alterations in clinical supervision of its speech-language pathologists. The challenges and advantages of this reorganization are explored.
