Outcomes Effective Date Regulator Details
Appearance for a Caution May 04, 2017 College of Naturopaths of Ontario On May 4, 2017, a panel of the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee (the Panel) met with the Member in order to deliver an Oral Caution with respect to the following allegations:
  • Performing intravenous injections prior to having met the College’s Standard of Practice for Intravenous Infusion Therapy (IVIT) and the Standard of Practice for Prescribing of the College;
  • Administering a substance by injection, including substances that are not listed in Table 2 of the General Regulation, prior to having met the Standard of Practice for Prescribing of the College;
  • False or misleading advertising regarding the Member’s services.

    The Panel was concerned that the Member appeared unaware that upon proclamation of the Naturopathy Act, a naturopath may only administer a substance by injection, whether intramuscular or subcutaneous, if they have met the Standard of Practice for Prescribing and that members of the College are only allowed to inject substances listed in table 2 of the General Regulation under the Naturopathy Act. As a naturopath and a regulated health professional the Member was expected to be familiar and compliant with the Legislation, Regulations and Standards of Practice governing the profession.

    The Panel emphasized that performing mesotherapy by way of injecting substances, such as hyaluronic acid and cosmetic fillers, contravenes the General Regulation and Standards of Practice of the profession and that the Member is expected to always abide by the Regulations and Standards governing the profession irrespective of whether she is accredited as a “mesotherapy practitioner”.

    The Panel explained that even though the Member had discontinued the provision of IVIT, advertising services which the Member was not authorized to perform, including IVIT and IM injections, might constitute professional misconduct as per section 27 of the Professional Misconduct Regulation. Any information about the Member’s practice available to the general public must be accurate, not misleading, verifiable by the Member and compliant with the College’s Advertising Standard of Practice and the Advertising Guideline.

  • Specified Continuing Education and Remediation Program (SCERP) Jan 12, 2017 College of Naturopaths of Ontario On January 12, 2017 a Panel of the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee determined that within 6 months following the date of the Oral Caution, the Member shall attend one meeting with a College-approved practice supervisor who will review the Member’s appointment records and select 10-15 patient files to ensure that the services/treatments offered by the Member are within the naturopathic scope of practice.
