Preventing Medical Errors in Speech-Language Pathology

04 Aug

Florida-licensed Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists are required to complete 2 hours of continuing education on the Prevention of Medical Errors every 2 years for their license renewal. The same course can be taken every 2 years as it is considered a “refresher” of the knowledge. To be accepted by the Florida Board of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology, the course must either be offered by an ASHA-approved provider or by a provider approved by another Florida licensing board.

Preventing Medical Errors in Speech-Language PathologyProfessional Development Resources now offers a 2-hour course on Preventing Medical Errors in Speech-Language Pathology to meet this requirement. The course is registered with ASHA for 0.2 CEUs and is available online for immediate access.
