You will choose two allied health specialties from either The Association of Schools for Allied Health Professions website or the textbook. Write a paper of 500-750 words addressing the specialties that would interact during a typical workday in a hospital, a long-term care facility, and an outpatient clinic. You will specifically address three out of the following six questions in your paper:
- What is their function?
- How does it affect your specialty?
- How does it affect the patient?
- If a facility did not have a particular specialty, who would be able to take over that function?
- Would you be willing to be cross-trained for the function?
- Is there a written policy for coverage issues?
