There’s no question that speech-language pathologists and audiologists collaborate with a number of counterparts when working to treat their patients. They work together in schools with teachers, parents, and administrators to create and implement treatment plans for their clients. In hospitals and private facilities, they work together with staff, physicians, nurses, occupational therapists, and many others. In fact, it’s rare when a healthcare professional works alone with a patient. Why is this? One reason is growing evidence showing that interprofessional practice (IPP) is linked to improved patient outcomes, which is a top priority of any health professional.
