Remuneration and Incentives Position Statement

Jul 14, 2017

Audiology Australia’s position on the remuneration of audiologists is that:

  • Commissions should not be based on sales targets
  • Remuneration structures that put audiologists under pressure to meet sales targets place members at risk of breaching the Code of Conduct
  • Remuneration levels should be based on the clinical experience of the audiologist and the outcomes their clients achieve
  • Client outcomes must be measured by scientifically validated and reliable assessment tools in order to be in any way meaningful and a true reflection of client outcomes
  • Audiologists’ employment conditions should allow them to adhere to the Code of Conduct and make recommendations to clients based on clinical assessment and the client’s needs
  • Clients should be protected from unethical conduct when purchasing hearing aids and devices.
