We are the only organisation in Australia that advocates exclusively for the interests of physiotherapists and physiotherapy clients.We advocate for service efficiency, research-informed treatment modalities and practitioner scope of practice. Our advocacy covers direct lobbying with members of parliament and key stakeholders. We actively participate in education forums and develop strategic discussion papers, position statements and formal submissions, prepared in collaboration with our membership.
