Policy statement: Ethical responsibilities of physical therapists and member organisations

The World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) expects its member organisations to:

  • have a code of or code of conduct.
  • publish, promote and circulate their code of ethics or code of conduct for the benefit of their members, the general public, employers, governments and government agencies.
  • ensure that the association, or relevant regularity body, has procedures for monitoring the practice of their members, handling complaints, along with appropriate disciplinary procedures and sanctions for members whose practice falls outside their code of ethics or code of conduct.

This builds on the WCPT ethical principles and explains the ethical responsibilities of physical therapists and member organisations addressing all aspects of professional conduct
