NLCHP Quality Assurance
In order to provide public protection and to prevent any misrepresentation to the public, the Health Professionals Act, SNL 2010, c.H-1.02 section 32 states that a person shall not use a name, title, description or abbreviation in a manner that expresses or implies that she or he is a member of a college unless the person is a registered member of that college.
All Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists registered to practice Audiology or Speech-Language Pathology in Newfoundland and Labrador must use the approved occupational titles and abbreviations. Please see Policy “Quality Assurance 4-10 Use of Title”
To further support quality assurance, continuing education is required by all members (minimum 10 hours per year) and can be selected by the member based on their interests/needs within the field of Audiology or Speech-Language Pathology.
