Physiotherapy practice thresholds

The Board has been working with its Australian counterpart, the Physiotherapy Board of Australia, to revise and update the Physiotherapy practice thresholds in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand (referred to here as “Physiotherapy practice thresholds”).

This document plays a vital role in the framework for physiotherapy practice in New Zealand and, as such, we would greatly appreciate your feedback on the proposed changes.

The consultation document for the proposed changes is here. The proposed revised version of the thresholds is here, and the consultation survey is here.

Physiotherapy health records standard and the Professional Boundaries standard.

As part of our ongoing systematic review of the Physiotherapy Standards, the Board has opened consultation on revisions of the Physiotherapy health records standard and the Professional Boundaries standard.

You can read the consultation document for changes to both of these standards here. The consultation survey for the proposed revised Health records standard is here and the Professional boundaries standard (which is proposed to includes and replaces the current Sexual and emotional boundaries standard) can be found here.

The Standards Framework provides the minimum standards for the profession and underpin the regulatory response to breach of these standards. Please take the time to review the proposed changes and let us know what you think.
