What’s your professional development goal?

For a Physiotherapist, professional development should be about accruing enough hours to tick that box on your registration every year.

Physio CPD is an amazing opportunity to grow your career in the direction that gives you the most satisfaction, working with the clients you want to work with.

The more you can develop your Physiotherapy skills and reasoning, the less frustration you’ll feel with unexplained responses to treatment or that meh feeling when every ankle looks like an ATFL injury.
