Australian Physiotherapy Association Scope of Practice Explainer

Competence. Setting & Safeguarding. The Law. These three things are essential to understanding our scope of practice.

Scope of practice can a be difficult concept to understand particularly when you are a student or transitioning to your first job. Your understanding of the concept changes throughout your career especially when starting a new specialty or rotation. With the help of this video from the Australian Physiotherapy Association understanding your scope of practice has become clearer.

Scope is all about your own identity as a clinician within the boundaries of your competence, setting/safeguarding and the law. Once you understand this you’ll develop yourself as a clinician and your patients will benefit.

My interest in health and fitness started at a young age. Even though I had been educated and trained as an engineer in Europe I always want to follow my passion.
