Identifying and resolving ethical dilemmas in the work of professionals caring for hearing-impaired children can serve as the basis for preventing occupational stress and burnout and improving the effectiveness of audiological care. Aim of the study: Ethical analysis of the professional activities of audiologists and speech-language therapists. Materials and methods: internet survey of 139 specialists (98 audiologists and 41 speech-language therapists) based on the «effort-reward» model. Results and discussion: the average indicator on the «Effort» scale in the group of audiologists was 5,5 ± 1,8 points, in the group of speech-language therapists – 5.9 ± 1,5 points. The average indicator on the «Reward» scale in the group of audiologists was 7,2 ± 1,9 points, in the group of speech-language therapists – 7,4 ± 2,8 points. Salaries are considered inadequate by 58% of audiologists and 22% of speech-language therapists, 59% of audiologists and 25% of speech-language therapists intend to change their job. The revealed tension is compensated by high respect among patients, management and colleagues. At the same time, the level of professional collegiality is higher among audiologists than among speech-language therapists. Conclusion: the analysis made it possible to identify ethical dilemmas in the work of audiologists and speech-language therapists.
