The standards outlined in this document represent the expected professional behavior and clinical practice of audiologists. Readers are referred to the American Academy of Audiology’s Scope of Practice, Code of Ethics, position statements, practice guidelines as well as the core values statements for specific guidance.
The Standards of Practice for Audiology were developed to define acceptable standards of practice for services representing the Academy’s Scope of Practice.
The standards reflect the values and priorities of the profession. They were developed with the knowledge that audiologists evaluate, diagnose, and treat a diverse population across the lifespan; practice culturally sensitive patient/family-centered care; promote safety through universal precautions; and continually evaluate and improve care through assessment of outcomes.
Whether serving on a clinical document development panel or participating as peer reviewers, volunteers have regular chances to deepen their engagement with the Academy and make important contributions benefiting the field of audiology. If you are interested in clinical document development, please volunteer to express interest and submit a CV to the Academy’s guidelines staff by email.
To view the list of guidelines and strategic documents in development and to learn more about the Academy’s clinical document development process, visit the Academy’s Practice Resources website. Information from interested members is accepted on an ongoing basis, and members will be contacted as clinical document volunteer openings occur.
