    Naturopathic doctors currently are limited to prescribing from a formulary - a list of specific pharmaceuticals approved for naturopathic prescriptions that must be updated yearly in coordination with the Department of Health. Under the new rule, naturopathic authority will expand in line with a principle that governs other doctors' prescribing powers: no restrictions except those of their own "scope of practice."  http://vtdigger.org/2013/10/03/lcar-face-naturopath-prescription-rule/

    The FNMRA is in the first stages of creating a disciplinary database of all NDs who have had disciplinary action taken against them in all US and Canadian jurisdictions. The database was a high priority identified in the initial survey of regulatory jurisdictions. The first step will be to create a list to assist you in your investigations of all initial applicants and current licensees/registrants.
    We would like your help in compiling the list of all NDs who have had disciplinary action taken against them in North America. To be most useful, we will need the participation of all jurisdictions. You do not need to be a member to submit information to us.

    The Academic Consortium for Complementary and Alternative Health Care (ACCAHC) has recently completed a paper in conjunction with with four of its member organizations.
    The paper
    examines the current and prospective roles of DCs, NDs, LAcs and direct-entry midwives in meeting nation's primary care needs.
    The goal of this paper is to assist policy makers, regulators, third-party payers, delivery system administrators, practitioners, and other concerned parties as well as the disciplines themselves in considering the optimal use of these professions as part of the nation’s primary care matrix.

    In July 2012 a new regulation under the Health Professions Act establishes the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta and gives that body the authority to establish requirements for entry into the profession and ongoing professional development. The regulation will also allow the College to set standards for professional practice, investigate complaints and govern use of protected titles, including Naturopath and Naturopathic Doctor.
