Advocacy & Speech-Language Pathology: How Can You Be a Change-Maker?
The language used in the descriptions reflects the language of the sessions.
Speech-language pathologists and communication health assistants are in a strong position to advocate for their role on interprofessional teams and for the needs of their patients/clients, yet many professionals don’t feel equipped to promote their role to decision-makers, other professionals or, most importantly, the general public.
This session will provide an overview of advocacy: what it is and strategies which will allow you to become a better advocate for your profession. Participants will have the opportunity to work through a case study in a hands-on exercise and prepare their own advocacy toolkits.
