Code of Ethics
Canadian Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (CASLPA) Preamble
CASLPA members shall abide by the Code of Ethics, By-Laws and policies of the association. The Code of Ethics sets forth the fundamental values and standards essential to the responsible practice of speech-language pathology and audiology. The underlying values of the Code form the rationale for ethical standards and provide the basis for ethical practice and decision-making. The standards within the Code guide members in maintaining professionally acceptable behaviour in their practice. These are also the standards others use to judge members, and that form the basis for the actions of the CASLPA Ethics Committee. Any action that violates the spirit and purpose of the Code of Ethics is considered unethical. The Code provides guidance; it cannot offer definitive resolution to all ethical questions that may arise during professional practice. Failure to specify any particular responsibility of practice in this Code does not negate the existence of these responsibilities or practices.
