As the only accreditation authority for Physiotherapy Practitioner Programs in Australia, the Council has expertise in quality assuring education and training specifically targeted at meeting the needs of physios and the physiotherapy profession.
The Council provides an accreditation service for CPD activities aimed at enhancing the knowledge and skills of physios, leading to improved health outcomes for the community. The Council plays a vital role in setting standards, assuring quality and championing continuous improvement. Programs are assessed using a peer review process, providing feedback from a senior academic and/or clinical practitioner.
Accreditation provides a benchmark for the physiotherapy profession, assuring participants that a CPD activity has been assessed against a set of standards and will add value to a physio’s development. Accredited programs will be promoted via the Council website.
