Appearance for a Caution Aug 03, 2017 College of Naturopaths of Ontario On October 12, 2017, a panel of the Inquiries, Complaints and Reports Committee met with Ms Robinson in order to caution her about inappropriate advertising and prescribing practices.

The Panel outlined its concerns that Ms Robinson’s website included a promise or guarantee of success of her services and contained testimonials from patients, which is considered to be an act of professional misconduct as per the Professional Misconduct regulation. The Panel also pointed out that Ms Robinson’s advertising of the HCG program might have been perceived by the general public as advertising of services outside the naturopathic scope. The Panel cautioned Ms Robinson that her professional advertising should reflect a balance between the public interest and her individual or commercial interest. The public interest must be served by ensuring that the public gets accurate and understandable information so that it can make an informed choice.

Further, the Panel addressed their concerns about Ms Robinson recommending Vitamin D at more than 1,000 IU per dose and progesterone to her patients prior to having met the Prescribing Standard of Practice. The Standard states that a naturopath may only prescribe drugs listed in Table 3 of the General Regulation if they have successfully completed a College-approved course and an examination in Therapeutic Prescribing.

The Panel acknowledged that Ms Robinson resigned from the College and continues practising as a health coach. However, as Ms Robinson’s naturopathic training is referenced on her website, the Panel advised Ms Robinson that she is responsible for ensuring that her healthcare clients, the public, other healthcare professionals, and other relevant authorities understand that the services she provides are not naturopathic services.

The Panel also reminded Ms Robinson that she is no longer authorized to use the restricted titles “Doctor” or “Naturopath” and that, should the College become aware of her failure to comply with the legislative requirements, it may seek an injunction against her from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.
