Appearance for a Caution Nov 03, 2016 College of Naturopaths of Ontario On June 2, 2016 a Panel of the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee determined that the Member shall appear before a panel of the ICRC for an Oral Caution.

The Panel outlined its concerns with the Member’s practice regarding the following:
  • use of unapproved substances and therapies;
  • not charting G6PD levels prior to commencing high dose, intravenous, vitamin C treatments;
  • breach of an Undertakings to the former regulator;
  • procedures and protocols for the safe compounding of sterile substances;
  • record-keeping practices.

The Member was cautioned that (1) naturopaths may currently administer and compound only substances listed in the General Regulation under the Naturopathy Act, 2007, in accordance with the limitations outlined in the regulation; (2) G6PD test is necessary before administering high dose Vitamin C intravenous injections; (3) it is the Member’s responsibility to maintain accurate, legible and comprehensive records; and (4) failing to carry out or abide by an undertaking given to the regulator is an act of misconduct as defined in the Professional Misconduct Regulation and may be referred to the Discipline Committee of the College.

The Panel strongly recommended that the Member review the Professional Misconduct Regulation made under the Naturopathy Act, 2007, and applicable Standards of Practice and Guidelines of the College. The Panel warned the Member that should there be a similar incident in the future the ICRC will likely take stronger actions.
