Ontario Homeopaths Care About Public Safety

This petition had 122 supporters

We the undersigned citizens of Ontario and members of the College of Homeopaths of Ontario (CHO) draw attention to the fact that the Homeopathy Act requires a minimum clinical training of 225 hours of direct patient contact. It has come to our attention that the council of the CHO created a document stating that schools have the freedom to interpret these hours at their own discretion. We believe that this is an illegal action that dissolves the standards set by the act, whose original intention was to protect the public from poorly trained healthcare professionals.

In order to protect public safety, we petition the council of the College of Homeopaths to make changes in the entry to practice requirement standards so that they abide by the standards set in the homeopathy act of 225 direct patient contact hours and are not available to free interpretation. Direct patient contact must mean actual face to face interaction with patients and an allocation of no more than 2 hours for an initial case taking and 1 hour per follow-up.
