Welcome to a web-based continuing education course prepared for ACSLPA, the Alberta College of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists. This course is open to ACSLPA regulated members only (practicing and non-practicing SLPs).
COURSE PURPOSE: Ordering videofluoroscopy (VFSS) is typically restricted to a select number of authorized professionals (currently SLPs are not part of this authorized group). Regulatory changes may soon permit SLPs to seek authorization to order VFSS, provided they have advanced knowledge. This course will equip SLPs with that knowledge.
Currently this course is being offered for professional development purposes only. Once we receive notification from government that an advanced authorization to refer for ionizing radiation by SLPs has been granted, we will incorporate an examination that will be required if you want to obtain the authorization. Regulated members who may be interested in pursuing the advanced authorization once it is approved should retain a copy of the certificate of completion for this course. It will be required to obtain your advanced authorization.
