Federal Election Statement 2016 

The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA) is committed to working with all political parties to inform and develop policies that will ensure good health for all Australians.

Enabling all Australians to have access to safe, high-quality physiotherapy, when and where required, will bring improved health outcomes, lead to cost savings and make Australia’s healthcare system first class as it should be. It’s time for governments to prioritise physiotherapy.

The following election statement outlines three priority areas that the incoming government should address to ensure all Australians enjoy the best health and wellbeing they can:

  • Ensuring equitable access to physiotherapy;
  • Reducing unnecessary hospitalisation; and
  • Scaling up physiotherapy-led injury prevention.
