Policy statement: Physical therapy records management - record keeping, storage, retrieval and disposal

The World Confederation for Physical Therapy (WCPT) aims to improve the quality of global service delivery by encouraging high standards of education and practice. WCPT recognises the importance and legal requirement for high quality, accurate and comprehensive records. This is an expectation set out in agreed standards for physical therapy practice and viewed as essential for the protection and care of service users.

To help implement this policy, we have produced the WCPT guideline for physical therapy records management: record keeping, storage, retrieval and disposal.
