Best Practice, Policies and Statements

The BAPO Standards for Best Practice cover both the Role & Scope of Practice of the Prosthetist/Orthotist and the Role of the Prosthetic/Orthotic Assistant Practitioner.  We have created an individual document which seeks to further clarify the supervisory aspect of that professional relationship in addition to the professional and legal responsibilities of both practitioners.
