Practice Standards 2013
The Standards outline the practice expectations of all social workers. They are designed to guide social workers to ensure they fulfil their professional practice responsibilities.
The Practice Standards 2013 sit alongside the Code of Ethics 2010 (the Code) as an additional practice guide for members, employers and others.
The Ethics Consultation Service has been renamed the Ethics and Practice Standards Consultation Service and for the first time will expand to include consultation around the implementation and interpretation of the Practice Standards 2013 to guide practice, as the Code is currently used to guide ethical decision making and ethical practice.
