As the Board of Ethics (2000)  indicates, whistleblowing should be a last resort. It should be the last resort when all other attempts to resolve ethical dilemmas have failed (Pannbacker, 1998).
The Board also stresses the importance of ethics education for students and practicing professionals. Students need to know about strategies, such as ethical decision-making models and conflict resolution, to minimize ethical risks. Practicing professionals need to be aware of changes in ethical practices such as ASHA’s Scope of Practice in Speech-Language Pathology (1996) and Preferred Practice Patterns for the Professions of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology (1997) . Some speech-language pathologists are unaware that speech-language pathologists cannot perform audiology evaluations.
