CAREER DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR PHYSIOTHERAPISTS IN SLOVENIA
Introduction: Changes in the education of physiotherapists bring advances in knowledge but also greater responsibilities for physiotherapists in ensuring that patients receive the best possible service (1). Learning the profession of physiotherapy begins with enrollment in a undergraduate physiotherapy course and ends with retirement. Physiotherapists are obliged to constantly improve their knowledge and skills by attending different courses, enrolling in postgraduate education (Master’s and Doctoral degrees) and/or choosing a specialization that may be informal or formally organized (14). The purpose of this article is to present the possibilities of business development to all physiotherapists and future physiotherapists in Slovenia. Methods: I used a descriptive method by reviewing domestic and foreign literature, Health Care and Health Insurance Act of the Republic of Slovenia, the National Strategy for Health Quality and Safety, and guidelines recommended by the European Region of the World Association of Physiotherapists (ER-WCPT).
