February 1 to March 31, 2017

All registered physiotherapists with Independent Practice Certificates and Provisional Practice Certificates must complete the annual Professional Issues Self Assessment—PISA—between February 1 to March 31, 2017.

PISA is the mandatory, 7-question online exercise that covers a number of topics, including top practice advice questions the College receives. There is no score recorded. The College only tracks if PTs have answered all of the questions. Please click the DONE button on the last page to submit PISA.

Physiotherapists should watch their email inboxes in February 2018 for more information about PISA.

A big thank you to the 8,933 physiotherapists who completed PISA! Now that the hard part is over, let's have a look at the questions and answers. How did the answers you selected compare to the answers below? Click on each question to find out.
