Speech Pathology Australia Risk Assessment Tool (COVID-19)

SPA has released its new “Risk Assessment Tool (COVID-19)“, designed to assist speech pathologists to assess the number and type of risk factors for transmission of COVID-19 that may be present in any “in-person” clinical scenario. The tool takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Upon completion of the risk assessment, the speech pathologist will be emailed a report listing the risks identified in this tool along with recommendations for risk management.
