Appearance for an Oral Caution Jan 11, 2018 College of Naturopaths of Ontario

On March 1, 2018, the Member attended before a panel of the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee to be cautioned.

At the outset, the Panel noted that the Member’s patient records confirmed that she had been providing Intravenous Infusion Therapy (IVIT), without having met the Standard of Practice for IVIT. Additionally, the Member’s website advertised that she was licensed to practise IV protocols, which was misleading to her patients and the general public.

The Member was cautioned that her failure to familiarize herself with the new regulations that came into effect with proclamation, or to take the time to review the important correspondence from the College, may have put her patients and the public at risk. The Panel noted that the Member’s conduct might have raised concerns regarding her governability as a Naturopath as well as her ability to provide safe, competent and ethical naturopathic care.

The Panel further outlined its concerns regarding the Members advertising practices, including publishing false information, advertising services beyond the scope, advertising tools to screen for cancer contrary to Health Canada’s advisory, and advertising herself as a ”Naturopathic Family Doctor” and “Physician” in contravention to the College’s Standards of Practice for Restricted Titles.

The Panel noted that one of the purposes of the Standard of Practice for Advertising is to protect the public from being misled by the manner in which a Member describes or advertises their practice. The Member was cautioned that when advertising naturopathic services to the public, she must be vigilant that all information conforms to the Standards of the College that are in place at the time.

In conclusion, the Panel noted if similar concerns are brought to the Colleges attention in the future, the ICRC panel will take stronger action against the Members.
