Codes and guidelines

The Physiotherapy Board of Australia has developed codes and guidelines to provide guidance to the profession. These also help to clarify our views and expectations on a range of issues.

Guidelines are approved by the National Board and may be used as evidence of what constitutes appropriate professional conduct or practice for physiotherapy in proceedings under the National Law or a law of a co-regulatory jurisdiction against a health practitioner.
