ACPOHE membership Structure
Recent changes to the ACPOHE membership
On the back of information presented at the ACPOHE study day in April 2018, and then agreement from membership in November 2019, it was agreed the current structure of the membership would be reviewed and the introduction of a new Technical membership was introduced.
Why change the current structure?
1) The overall aim is to improve the quality, skills and competency within Occupational Health Physiotherapy and ensure all members have a basic skill set to be able to work within this specialism.
2) Promote the profession within this speciality.
3) Raise the bar.
4) Become more aligned to other Occupational Health Professional memberships and organisations.
