Advanced Practice

These pages will help you to understand Advanced Practice Recognition. Information features on what recognition is, what it involves and how it can help with your career journey. If you wish to proceed with an application for recognition, you will also find specific application forms, fees involved, and Terms & Conditions.  It is important to understand this information before proceeding with an application.

Please be advised, there are two application pathways for members seeking Advanced Practice Recognition in a clinical focus area (paediatrics, pain management, occupational health, exercise-based rehabilitation, sports practice).

The tertiary application pathways require a further university qualification in a focus area, while the vocational application pathways exist for members without a further university qualification demonstrating relevant work experience, professional development, professional references and reasoned case studies.  

Please be advised, the fee for Advanced Practice Recognition is an additional individual fee and not paid out of overall membership funds. While recognition has implications for the overall standing of the profession and its scope, recognition gives individual promotional benefits.
