Patient Rights

It is critical that patients know their rights when they or a loved one are being treated by a healthcare professional. Understanding the parameters and boundaries for their care helps them feel respected and part of the process.

The College’s Patient Relations Committee has created a one-page handout that explains what patients can expect when it comes to care and treatment by a naturopath. It reflects existing requirements from the College’s Standards of Practice and Guidelines.

While it is not mandatory, naturopaths are encouraged to download this free resource to share with patients in ways that fit with their practice approach and style. We created three simple design options in Microsoft Word, which Members can customise with their logo and other practice information.
