On August 10th, the Ontario Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists (OSLA) formally presented to the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care (MOHLTC) their submissions for proposed legislative changes in the scopes of practice for Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists.
OSLA is proposing access to several controlled acts including "communicating a diagnosis", as well as the removal of limitations that prevent members from making direct referrals to specialty medicine, such as ENTs. OSLA has kept CASLPO advised of the development of their submissions. CASLPO looks forward to making formal comments on the submissions in the near future. These changes, if agreed to by the Ministry of Health and enacted by the government, would result in changes to the Audiology and Speech-Language Pathology Act, 1991, as well as many CASLPO practice standards.

If you work in a multi-disciplinary team and are looking for a way to easily compare what is the same and what is different when it comes to record keeping, have a look at the online Inter-Professional Record Keeping Resource.
Get all the information you need in one place. This resource starts with the patient/client record and covers things like electronic records, using personal health information, financial records, record retention, leaving or closing a practice, record destruction and more.
Following months of media stories questioning whether regulatory Colleges, such as ours, are doing everything they can to be more transparent and effective concerning their complaint processes and outcomes, the Minister of Health and Long-Term Care asked that Colleges share more information with the public and improve their approaches to transparency.
