What is it about?
In this paper we ask whether research related to the professional codes and principles in audiology, from 1980 to 2010, provide relevant information that has kept pace with the increasing challenges of the twenty-first century. We describe the available data in terms of ethical approaches, topics and principles, components of moral behavior and the role of the audiologist. This allowed us to highlight the areas related to the moral codes and principles in audiology that require further investigation.
Why is it important?
Given the close relationship between clinical and ethical decision making, research facilitating deeper understanding in terms of moral codes and principles and the practical application thereof in everyday life is key for thoughtful therapists who act morally, as a result of problem solving with evidence based insight and reflection.
