Physiotherapy university graduates have great skills in solving health problems and proving benefits to their clients’ and the community.

This unique workshop provides graduates with a head start in learning what clients’ value and how to best meet their needs in private practice.

Hear from industry experts as they share concepts they wish they knew as a new graduate.

Learn how to effectively translate your undergraduate knowledge into the industry context of a private physiotherapy practice.

Learning and developing these skills early on ensures you will be a preferred candidate when entering the private workforce and will give you greater professional satisfaction as a physiotherapist.

What you will learn:

  • Distinguish between the mindset of public versus private physiotherapist.

  • Identify mini-moments pre-purchase of your clients in terms of needs, wishes, feelings and personal goals.

  • Learn how to read your client and build rapport with them quickly to establish a good therapeutic relationship and ensure successful outcomes.

  • Establish trust between the client and treating physiotherapist so there is an understanding of the value of the treatment and alignment of goals and expectations.

  • Learn how to manage your customer’s expectations to ensure that the treatment plan is fit for purpose and will produce the expected and intended outcomes.

  • Demonstrate the effectiveness of your treatment plan to a patient using PROs.

  • Apply a holistic approach to therapeutic outcomes to promote the adoption of healthier habits and greater health awareness including cross-selling of products and services.
