Standards & Legislation
CSHBC has created a Standards & Legislation section on the College’s website to enable registrants, applicants, and others to more easily locate information on regulatory requirements for Registered Audiologists (RAUDs), Registered Hearing Instrument Practitioners (RHIPs), and Registered Speech-Language Pathologists (RSLPs).
Standards & Legislation, which is in the site’s main menu visible on every webpage, includes the following pages:
- Standards of Practice
- Notice of Bylaw Amendments
- Scopes of Practice
- Reserved Titles
- Health Professions Legislation
- Health Professions and Occupations Act
The Standards of Practice page, which includes professional and clinical standards that outline the minimum level of acceptable performance for registrants, was previously located in Registrant Resources.
Registrants have a professional responsibility to be familiar with regulatory requirements outlined on the above pages.
Registrants should also be familiar with information in the Registrant Resources section, which includes the following pages:
- Competency Profiles
- Clinical Policies
- Clinical Practice Guidelines & Protocols
- Registration Policies, Guidelines, & Forms for Registrants
- Professional Liability
- Duty to Report
