Continuing professional development resources

All registered physiotherapists practising in Australia must maintain a portfolio documenting participation in continuing professional development (CPD) that contributes to maintaining and improving their competence to practise in their chosen scope of practice. The Board will accept as evidence a declaration by an individual of CPD activity sufficient to maintain competence throughout the period of registration.

The following resources answer common queries about continuing professional development.
