Accredited Registers (AR) Scheme for Speech Therapists Consultation Forum

Date: 28 July 2017 (Friday)
Time: 7:30pm - 9:30pm
Venue: Room AG710, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

In 2015, the government suggested an Accredited Registers (AR) Scheme, for regulation of health professions that are currently not under the registration system. In June 2017, the government announces an official start of a pilot run of the AR Scheme. Speech Therapy was chosen to be the first profession to undergo accreditation (http://www.info.gov.hk/gia/ge neral/201706/19/P2017061900782 .htm). A professional council (tentatively named as Hong Kong Speech Therapists Council) will be established for accreditation of local speech therapists, regulating and maintaining the register. Before the establishment of the Council, important issues, including the governance, accreditation criteria, require adequate and careful consultation with our fellow speech therapists.


This consultation forum aims to introduce the AR scheme in detail, to review the AR framework, professional documents for speech therapists, and to modify their contents to accommodate for the speech therapy practice in Hong Kong.


A brief introduction of the AR scheme for speech therapists is drafted. Three professional documents of the council, including Ethical Framework, Code of Practice and Scope of Practice can be found HERE.


Speech therapists are encouraged to provide feedback and comment on these important issues and documents in the consultation forum. We strongly encourage you and your colleagues to attend the forum. Also, please help to disseminate information and documents on AR with your colleagues prior to the forum.


Speech Therapists who are not available to attend the forum are strongly encouraged to submit their comments to us using the Accredited Registers Scheme for Speech Therapists Comment Form and return to us via email (hkast@speechtherapy.org.hk) or fax (3007 2590) by 31st July 2017 (Mon). Another way to give feedback is to leave a message at the HKAST website: www.speechtherapy. org.hk.


Thank you for your continual support to HKAST and we look forward to meeting you all in the consultation forum.

2013-2014 Membership Renewal Form & Procedure
Thank you for your support and participation in the year 2012-2013.   

This is a warm reminder for your membership renewal process. According to the HKAST constitutions, the renewal of your 2013-2014 HKAST membership starts on the 1 August, 2013. Members should renew their membership and pay membership fees on or before 31 October 2013, otherwise your membership would be lapsed. A re-joining fee of $200 is required if you would like to re-join us after the deadline. 

This year, HKAST will launch a membership portal for all members. The membership portal aims to provide you with a more effective and efficient way to renew your personal information, review your membership status, and most importantly, to apply for continuing professional development events online. 
Our membership portal will be launched progressively from late September 2013. We will combine our membership renewal process with the launch of portal.
