Introduction
The Advanced Practitioner Working Party is a joint project between the New ZealandCollege of Physiotherapy Inc. (NZCP) and the New Zealand Society of Physiotherapists Inc. (NZSP), which arose from a request from the profession toconsider how it could enhance future physiotherapy services in light of current andfuture healthcare requirements.The Working Party was asked to:
 Examine both the scope and recognition of the role of ‘Advanced  Practitioner’ within the physiotherapy profession in New Zealand and develop a set of recommendations for consultation with the profession and key stakeholders.
To answer this question, the Working Party developed a Consultation Documentwhich was sent to health provider groups in November 2007 for comment. Theoverwhelming majority of submissions supported the proposal for recognition of  physiotherapy specialisation, though there were a range of suggestions regardingthe title, qualifications and experience required for such a role. These suggestionsand comments have been incorporated into the recommendations detailed in thisreport.In considering a role for physiotherapy specialisation, it is important that any title anddefinition of physiotherapy specialisation is relevant and meaningful to New Zealandconsumers, employers and purchasers of physiotherapy services.It is also important that any recommendations are placed in the context of the current New Zealand health environment and the role physiotherapists already play.Physiotherapists act as independent practitioners, as well as members of health service provider teams. The majority of physiotherapists (51%) work in either private practice as primary healthcare providers or as members of health provider teams,within the provider arm services of District Health Boards (30%)
