Our Mission,Vision & Values

IAP mission and strategies are clear for its member physiotherapists. Strategies are made to enhance the performance and form the operational control over goal achievements. We work on growth projects with timeline and IAP CEC along with other members makes sure we achieve the objective in desired time.

Our mission is to:

Functions of IAP are meant to inspire others society and promote the movement for all. The following principles of Identity, Quality, Collaboration, Value, Innovation, Consumer-centricity, Access/Equity, and Advocacy demonstrate how the profession and society will look when this vision is achieved.

The principles are described as follows:

Professional Advocacy
To support Members in Profession with statutory organizations, and when facing important decisions about their Profession with service providers in situations such as:

Continuing Professional Care
Complaints resolution in more complex situations, both informally and through complaints procedures

  Human movement is a complex behaviour within a specific context, and is influenced by social, environmental, and personal factors. Recognition and validation of the movement system is essential to understand the structure, function, and potential of the human body. Physical therapist conduct the responsibility to evaluate and manage the movement systems in body to maintain the physical wellbeing and promote growth. Physiotherapists provide interventions to prevent activity limitations and participation restrictions. The movement system is the core of physical therapist practice, education, and research.

Commitment: As independent practitioners, Practitioners of physical therapy in clinical practice will embrace best practice standards in examination, diagnosis/classification, intervention, and outcome measurement. These physical therapists will generate, validate, and disseminate evidence and quality indicators, espousing payment for outcomes and patient/client satisfaction, striving to prevent adverse events related to patient care, and demonstrating continuing competence. Educators will seek to propagate the highest standards of teaching and learning, supporting collaboration and innovation throughout academia. Researchers will collaborate with clinicians to expand available evidence and translate it into practice, conduct comparative effectiveness research, standardize outcome measurement, and participate in inter-professional research teams.

Worth: The physiotherapy profession will provide will be safe, effective, patient/client-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable services. The services rendered have to be cost effective and meaningful to attain its value. 

Revolution: Revolution occurs when there is an alteration in the models of health care delivery and therapy practice methods. Education, research and development in patient/client centred models with technological applications are the building blocks of the physiotherapy practice. Clients have their reach to the technology; our therapists need to get immense hold over the technology as well. New practices and new theories are to be incorporated so that the client reach is successful for both the therapist and the clients. New models of research and enhanced approach to evidence will more expediently put these discoveries and other new information into the hands and minds of physiotherapists.

Approach: IAP will recognize the lacking in the profession and determinants of health on the consumer, as a health care system. We are determined to increase the awareness and approach of physical therapy services to the society. 

Recommendation: The consumer centric approach is the primary body of module which transcends the physiotherapy practice from theory to practice. The client needs and expectations are meant to be the indicators for the growth in awareness and development of patient practices.
