Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA)
The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) is the member society for Physiotherapists in Australia, and offers members a number of resources and support through special interest groups, such as in aging and palliative care.
For private practitioners the APA has guides, and business tools as well as a national special interest group and clinical guidelines for physiotherapists in business. This also includes guidance for clinical notes, supervising student placements in private practice, practice management software and mentoring.
The APA also offers hundreds of profession-specific professional development topics at its member website.
Another useful tool for physiotherapists is Physiopedia which is a not-for-profit organisation registered in the UK, designed to support clinicians working in rehabilitation, but with information relevant to aged care and palliative care. The site has a number of articles on palliative care topics and a search tool for current evidence.
