2016 ASET Symposium Recording - Now Available
. If you were unable to attend ASET's 2016 Annual Conference, you can now watch the symposium, "Urgent! Licensure Lifeboat to Protect Neurodiagnostic Technology Scope of Practice!" in its entirety by clicking here
. This is a FREE recording
. Present and imminent threats to our Scope of Practice abound. Neurodiagnostic Technologists have lost their jobs to non-credentialed and inexperienced replacements as hospitals and clinics struggle to cut cost. Without a license to protect our scope of practice, others will take ownership of duties traditionally performed by Neurodiagnostic Technologists. The field is being usurped by others and we are being deemed unqualified to do what we have chosen, studied and trained to do. Having a license specific to neurodiagnostics is the only way to protect our jobs and ensure quality testing for our patients. To protect our scope of practice and the patients we serve we need to come together and support the enactment of legislation requiring a professional license to perform neurodiagnostic procedures. The symposium will provide you information on the issue and how you can become involved in the licensure effort.
