New Health Equity Law Impacts Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists

02 Sep 2016 3:40 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

New regulations that went into effect July 18, 2016 will require audiologists and speech-language pathologists to review and update their nondiscrimination policies to ensure compliance with the Office for Civil Rights’ Nondiscrimination in Health Programs and Activities final rule. The rule expands on existing policies that protect patients against discrimination based on race, color, national origin, sex or disability. To learn how the new requirements may impact you, be sure to register for the free live online chat “Update on New and Existing Nondiscrimination Requirements for Audiologists and Speech-Language Pathologists in Healthcare Settings” scheduled for Monday September 12, from 6:00pm-7:30pm ET (open to ASHA members).
