The following has been adapted from the presentation given at the 1997 ASHA Leadership Conference, Miami, Florida.
The competencies needed by speech-language pathologists and audiologists are essential, if patients and clients are to receive appropriate and quality care. The use of competencies is not new to the profession, although the more formal documentation and outlining of skills may seem to be. By ensuring a desired level of competency of all clinical staff, the speech-language pathologist or audiologist can feel confident that treatment outcomes represent the best in the delivery of care. Whether the treatment setting is a private practice, acute care facility, school, hospital, rehabilitation facility, or community clinic, identified competencies should be consistent with the mission of the facility and incorporated into the performance appraisal plan for each professional and support person.
