About Us

INPTRA is organized and operated to support physiotherapy regulation. Educational and collaborative activities, communication, participation and interaction are the key to our success.

The INPTRA website is a tool for you to identify regulatory issues, leaders and groups in various countries - the power to gain broader input, communicate, post and publish.

Benefits include networking, collaboration, mentoring and sharing your meaningful expertise - plus as a resource for a compilation of views on focused research, regulation, benchmarking and best practices.

Purpose of Regulation

The purpose of regulation is to provide the public assurance that a physiotherapist is suitably qualified and competent to provide safe and competent care that meets appropriate regulatory standards.
