Speech Pathology Australia recognises speech pathology practice as encompassing advocacy, clinical services, consultation, education, prevention, and/or research (CBOS, 2011). Thus, despite the many and varied contexts in which speech pathologists work, all would have been required to collaborate with clients and communities to some degree. However, societal and political changes are increasingly influencing the degree to which collaboration is expected and the nature of the collaboration that takes place.
In this presentation, we will explore some of the changes in theory and practice over time: from the medical model to the social model to the biopsychosocial model of healthcare; from consultation to collaboration, cooperation, and partnership; from client-centred care to client-directed and client-led. We will consider the social, political and professional drivers behind these changes. We will consider what these shifts in thinking about collaboration mean for practice in a range of settings and with a range of populations. Finally, we will explore ways in which speech pathologists might renew their commitment to collaboration and implement practical strategies to enhance collaboration in their current practice.
