Last August ASHA tried something new—surveying a group of you in speech-language pathology practice, audiology practice, research and academic settings, and the National Student Speech Language Hearing Association (NSSLHA) about what you consider the most important or “hottest” topics in the discipline. ASHA fielded traditional surveys and asked the same questions on ASHA’s Facebook site.
What did you say? First, some issues touch members across professions and work settings, particularly issues related to reimbursement. Cochlear implants also crossed boundaries, capturing the interest of students and researchers and of course audiologists. Ethics made the top 10 in audiology and speech-language pathology. See “ Hot Topics” [PDF] for full results.
Unfortunately, the response rates were less than robust. Was August a bad time to field a survey? Are you not interested in these questions? Whatever the reason, the invitation is again open to weigh in on what issues you consider important (add your comments below). It’s one way to find out what topics you might like to read about in future issues of The ASHA Leader.
The results from the survey and Facebook are reported separately because not all of ASHA’s Facebook “friends” are members.
