Policy statement: Regulation of the physiotherapy profession

World Physiotherapy advocates for of the profession through recognised and valued systems. These systems should assure protection of the public through mechanisms including responsible self-governance of physiotherapists.

Models of professional regulation vary between countries/territories and are influenced by many factors, including the system of government, the system, and the history of the profession. In order to be effective, any system of regulation must take into account the economic, political, and cultural context in which the system is being implemented.

To support implementation, you can access World Physiotherapy guideline on development of a system for regulation of the physiotherapy profession.
