APA Position Statements
The APA releases position statements on topics and issues relevant to physiotherapists and their clients. Our position statements are developed in consultation with members, who are represented by the APA National Advisory Council. All position statements are assessed and approved by the APA Board of Directors prior to publication.
Position statements are prepared having regard to general circumstances, and it is the responsibility of the practitioner to have express regard to the particular circumstances of each case, and the application of this statement in each case. In particular, clinical management must always be responsive to the needs of individual patients, resources, and limitations unique to the institutions or type of practice. Position statements have been prepared having regard to the information available at the time of their preparation, and the practitioner should therefore consider any information, research or material which may have been published or become available subsequently.
While the APA endeavours to ensure that statements are as current as possible at the time of their preparation, it takes no responsibility for matters arising from changed circumstances or information or material which may have become available subsequently.
