Access to Primary Care Medications

The following article, “Naturopathic Doctors Gaining New Powers” was featured in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) in January 2010.  It discusses how an amendment to the Naturopathy Act is being tabled, which will grant Naturopathic Doctors access to Schedule 1 medications.  If passed, this will mean healthcare consumers in Ontario will be able to see their ND for basic primary care medications such as antibiotics.
