Download the recent presentation on Chinese medicine regulation in Australia.
This recent presentation on Chinese medicine regulation in Australia features an overview of who’s who and who does what, the important distinction between the Board and professional associations, a reminder about advertising restrictions, and an important update on the Guidelines for safe Chinese herbal medicine practice.
In Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney in late 2015 and 2016, the Chair of the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia, Professor Charlie Xue, and his fellow Board members, Professor Craig Zimitat and Dr Anne Fletcher, presented on Chinese medicine regulation in Australia to nearly 300 practitioners.
The presentation slides and an FAQ document that covers use of the title of acupuncturist and the term acupuncture, use of the title Doctor (Dr), use of the word specialist, advertising, access to some currently restricted herbs and the lower registration fee in New South Wales, are now available for download.
The Guidelines for safe Chinese herbal medicine practice are available on the Board's website.
