What’s at risk?
Consumer right of choice. Private Health Insurance rebates for natural therapies have been axed; education and research is under threat. Access to health services and medicines is being restricted.
Biased government reviews that ignored positive evidence, excluded subject experts & involved fringe sceptic groups who lobby politicians and bureaucrats to restrict consumer health choices.
Natural & allied health practitioners including Integrative medical practitioners are being targeted for offering patients complementary, traditional &/or innovative treatment options.
What are we doing?
Creating a community of people who value right of choice in healthcare; alerting people to threats and empowering them to have their voices heard by politicians and bureaucrats to create change.
What have we achieved?
New $2 million natural therapy review updates; supporting an Ombudsman review of misconduct; generating submissions to the Medical Board of Australia supporting Integrative GPs, and more+++
