Ensuring professional and ethical practice in sports therapy

The publication of the Enabling Excellence: Autonomy and Accountability for Health and Social Care Staff command paper by the Conservative Liberal Democrat coalition in 2011 had implications for the regulation of sports therapy. You are required to investigate, discuss and critique what impact the command paper, and its proposal for a shift from statutory to voluntary regulation had on sports therapy. You should conclude your work with a statement on the possible directions healthcare regulation could go in.
