Physiotherapy Business Australia

The Physiotherapy Business group of the APA is all about the business of physiotherapy. It's the only network that focuses specifically on your needs as a private practice owner, practitioner or principal. We understand your world.


The group can assist you directly with member-only resources or, if we can’t help, we can direct you to appropriate help. We aim to be useful for both less-experienced practice owners and well-established, busy practices.


Member benefits
  • Stay up to date with changes in legislation, HR and IR issues, helpful resources and more
  • Improve your financial acumen and business management skills through discounts on professional development
  • Benefit from the group’s work advocating for physiotherapy’s interests on issues like private health insurance, fees and more
  • Understand those processes that may have a negative impact on your business
  • Influence the private practice model through leadership positions on committees
  • Monthly e-news and a members-only web page

When you start a business, the amount of non-clinical input is huge. It can make or break you. Joining the Physiotherapy Business group can help overcome these business barriers.
