Physiotherapy

The Assessment of Physiotherapy Practice (APP)  is a valid and reliable instrument for the workplace based assessment of professional practice of physiotherapy students. It is now used nationally to assess the performance of physiotherapy students on practice placements.

For background information on the development and the testing of the APP, refer to the overview and about tabs on the APP Link Up Website.

The APP Clinical Educators Manual is attached as a topic to this section.

References for APP Development and Testing are available at the following links:  2011 and 2012.
