Editorial Reviews

For aspiring as well as practicing clinicians, 26 contributed chapters are arranged in sections giving an overview of the professions (e.g. professional issues and organizations, certification, liability, international alliances, clinical specialization); employment opportunities and issues; policies and practices connected with service delivery and with provision of quality care; and clinical research issues (research methods and grantseeking, data collection, and the future).

Reviewer: Linda Jacobs-Condit, AuD, CCC-A(George Washington University)
Description: This book is intended to help clinicians better understand the critical professional challenges facing speech-language pathologists and audiologists. Chapters cover clinical competencies, ethics, evidence-based practice, professional liability, and professional autonomy.
Purpose: According to the authors, the book is intended as a primary text and resource for faculty, students, and practicing clinicians. It reviews current issues and challenges in the field, providing a wealth of practical and professional information that make it a "must-have" text.
Audience: Speech-language pathologists and audiologists representing every spectrum of the profession — students, faculty, and practicing clinicians - are the intended audience. The authors are all well known experts in the field of speech-language pathology. They all have served as faculty, researchers, lecturers, and authors.
Features: The 28 chapters are organized in five sections: overview of the profession, employment issues, expanding clinical populations and settings, providing quality care, and evidence-based practice. Each chapter includes a description of the information presented in the chapter as well as a summary of key points. Also included are case studies and vignettes. New to this edition is a table that includes the new Council for Clinical Certification standards for obtaining the Certificate of Clinical Competence in both speech-language pathology and audiology. Many chapters also feature useful appendixes, as well as a critical thinking section to spark classroom discussions about professional issues. Among the subjects new to this edition are historical roots, professional liability, technology, leadership and supervision in the workplace, clinical education, and evidence-based practices.
Assessment: This should become a desk reference for all speech-language pathologists and audiologists in both clinical practice and academic settings. It is a "must-have" text, written by recognized experts in the profession.
