Code of Conduct and Standards of Practice

These have been based on the work by Caroline Stone, as part of the Capabilities for Osteopathic practice project, commissioned by the New South Wales Osteopaths Registration Board, Australia. As this is now a general register, with members drawn from a variety of professions, the Standards are currently being updated top reflect this pan professional dynamic.

The current (adopted) Standards can be downloaded here.

The code of conduct is in development and will be able to be downloaded here.
