Physiotherapy Board Symposium

The Board is holding an invitees-only symposium to share important information and gather feedback on its standards and draft Code of Ethics.

Over the last year the Board has undertaken three important projects: implementing the binational Physiotherapy Practice Thresholds; an initial consultation and review of the Aotearoa New Zealand Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, working with Physiotherapy New Zealand project; and finally, producing a draft suite of professional and practice standards.

Together these documents provide the framework for the future of New Zealand physiotherapy and our vision to foster excellence and actively make a difference.
