This paper-contributes to the debate about the advantages of profession-management and autonomy in-physiotherapy. It defines concepts of accountability, authority, responsibility and autonomy and examines physiotherapy managers' responsibilities and accountability', for the quality of physiotherapists' casework decisions in relation to an individual client's. It proposes that roles with case and practice autonomy should be recognised to help clarify accountability within the profession. The paper closes by considering physiotherapy managers' accountability for physiotherapists working in multidisciplinary teams.
