ABSTRACT

Purpose: The Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) field has been systemized in Korea's national qualification framework since 2012. However, the job duties or tasks of SLPs are not well established and have not been studied in detail. In addition, the different tasks required by the different classes of Korean SLPs are not clearly defined. The present study aimed to (1) define SLP, (2) describe the job duties and tasks of SLPs, and (3) suggest differential job tasks between the first and second class of SLPs. Methods: Fifty experts who have doctoral degrees in SLP or more than 5 years of clinical experience participated in the study. Thorough three steps of delphi study, the content validity of questionnaires were examined and those of all questions were over 4.0 out of 5.0. Based on these results, SLP's job duties and tasks were analyzed. In addition, these were compensated through public hearings. Results: By analyzing three steps of a delphi study, the authors suggested (1) job definition, (2) five job duties, 17 tasks, and 57 task elements, and (3) differential job tasks of the first and second class of Korean SLP. Conclusions: This study provides a framework for further research on Korean SLP's job analysis.
