Abstract

This position paper provides the professional clinical context within which speech and language therapists (SLTs) can practice endoscopic evaluation of the larynx and the appropriate procedural protocols that should be observed. The document also provides a structured framework for both the acquisition and maintenance of the knowledge and skills required. In addition there are statements on professional issues of responsibility and health and safety matters. This position paper supersedes all previous RCSLT guidance in respect to SLT endoscopy for voice disordered patients (e.g 2004 policy statement).
