What Is It?
The College of Physiotherapists of Ontario created this checklist to help guide physiotherapists who are thinking about or are in the process of starting their own physiotherapy practice. This checklist covers important considerations including privacy, business practices, physical work environment, infection control, record keeping, physiotherapist assistants, etc.
Although not exhaustive, this list of things to consider is a good starting point. It will also make you consider things that you hadn’t previously thought of like privacy laws. Useful resources are provided for many of the considerations so you’re able to seek more information if needed.
