The Physiotherapy Board of Australia (the Board) has released its report for 2014/15.
During 2014/15 the Board successfully collaborated with the Physiotherapy Board of New Zealand, culminating in the launch on 1 May 2015 of the bi-national physiotherapy practice threshold statements. The new thresholds will ensure that there are consistent entry-level competencies for the physiotherapy profession across both countries. They include the requirements for all New Zealand and Australian physiotherapy graduates. The Board also started working with its appointed accreditation authority, the Australian Physiotherapy Council, to embed the thresholds into Australian programs of physiotherapy study, as well as the assessment processes for overseas-trained physiotherapists.
