These pages will help you to understand advanced practice recognition. Information is included on what recognition is, what it involves and how it can help with your career journey. If you wish to proceed with gaining recognition, you will also find guidance on what the application process involves, specific application forms, fees and terms and conditions. It is important to understand this range of information before proceeding with an application.
Please be advised, in 2020 two application pathways will exist for members seeking Advanced Practice Recognition in a clinical focus i.e. paediatrics, pain management, occupational health, exercise-based rehabilitation, sports practice.
The now open tertiary application pathways require a further university qualification in the focus area, while the soon to be vocational application pathways will exist for members without a further university qualification demonstrating relevant work experience, professional development, professional references and work samples.
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.
