The Board is proposing a series of changes to the application and assessment processes (and gazetting) for:

  • Return to Practice

The Board is consulting on a proposal to adopt a refreshed approach to trans-Tasman mutual recognition by allowing Australian registered physiotherapists who hold limited registration to be registered in Aotearoa New Zealand with conditions that emulate the limitations of their Australian registration.

This is a small but important change and we would greatly appreciate your thoughts on it. You can read the consultation document here and complete the consultation survey by clicking here
