Calling all Hearing Therapists!

August 08, 2019 at 11:56 AM

BAA is looking for interested Hearing Therapists to form a small working group that will be tasked with writing Standards of Proficiency for a Hearing Therapist.
The purpose of a Standards of Proficiency is to provide regulatory bodies with the threshold standards considered necessary to protect the public through setting clear expectations of clinician’s knowledge and abilities when they start practising as well as ensuring that clinicians continue to meet the standards of proficiency that apply to their scope of practice. Standards of proficiency allow HEIs to equip graduates to meet these standards and they outline what service users and the public should expect from their health professional. They can also be used if someone raises a concern about a clinician’s practice.
The working group will consist of hearing therapists who have:

         - Recognised Hearing Therapist qualification
         - RCCP registration as a Hearing Therapist
         - At least 5 years’ experience working as a Hearing Therapist We envision that the working group will meet in person (at least initially) as well as online through virtual meetings and should have scope to work on this project for a 6 month period.
Please contact to register your interest by the 30th of August 2019.
