Abstract

Extract:
A health professional uses all available techniques to resolve the health concerns of a client. This legitimate aim does not permit a practitioner to perform acts that must only be performed by specified registered professionals. Penalties may also apply to unregistered practitioners who are representing that they are registered or using titles that must only be used by registered professionals. A breach of a registration statute might occur where:
¯ a practitioner performs a restricted act that they are not entitled to perform, such as manipulation of the cervical spine, or
¯ a practitioner breaches the ’holding out’ provisions of professional registration statutes.
Ignorance of these parameters can result in:
¯ action by one of the national registration boards, such as the Chiropractic Board of Australia
¯ the voiding of professional indemnity insurance, and
¯ professional misconduct proceedings.

Chiropractors, osteopaths and, in Victoria, Chinese medicine practitioners, acupuncturists and Chinese herbal medicine dispensers are the only registered complementary medicine practitioners in Australia.
