Consultation on respiratory competence framework for physiotherapists in neonatal care

In 2011 the Association of Paediatric Physiotherapists (APCP), published a competence framework for physiotherapists working in the neonatal and special care unit in the UK.

The original document did not cover specialist neonatal respiratory care which was intended to be a separate project.

Since the publication of the document the Association of Paediatric Chartered Physiotherapists (APCP) have been working on a competence framework and evidenced-based practice guidance for physiotherapists working in neonatal intensive care units. The document is now ready for consultation.

The closing date for feedback is 10 September 2013.
