Information for Government and Providers

Advanced Practitioners demonstrate rigorous credentialing to the public, government, third party funders, employers, health professional colleagues, patients, their families, and carers. Advanced Practice status indicates that an osteopath has met the professional standards required to make an enhanced contribution to managing patient groups or clinical issues related to their advanced scope of practice.

Advanced Practitioners possess multiple assessment, diagnostic, and clinical intervention skills in common with other health professionals with an advanced scope of practice.


Quality Practice Frameworks 

Please scroll down to our Related Documents section - here, you can browse the Quality Practice Frameworks for each focus area.

These frameworks detail the knowledge, skills and competencies that Advanced Practitioners must demonstrate in the application review process via various activities required.  

Advanced Practitioners meet both ‘Extended Practice’ and ‘Advanced Practice’ level knowledge and skill domains through the application process.


Identifying an Advanced Practitioner

Providers, Government organisations, funds and other health stakeholders can search for an Advanced Practitioner by postcode or focus area using Find an Osteo.
