Practice Accreditation

The Podiatry Practice Accreditation Program is a contemporary, evidence-based initiative that aligns with the six national safety and quality health service standards applicable to podiatry. This program aims to ensure best practice, maintain a high standard of care for patients, and enforce correct protocols and procedures for safe and effective practice within the profession. Accredited podiatry practices that have successfully completed this program are recognized as Accredited Podiatry Practices. These practices adhere to rigorous standards, benefiting both their members and patients.
