    The U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution designating October 7 - October 13 as Naturopathic Medicine Week.
    The resolution recognizes the value of naturopathic medicine in providing "safe, effective, and affordable health care..." and encourages Americans to learn about the role of naturopathic physicians in preventing chronic and debilitating conditions.
    Passage of this resolution is an historic achievement for naturopathic medicine.  The Congress has now officially recognized the important role naturopathic medicine plays in effectively addressing the nation's health care needs as well as in addressing the increasingly severe shortage of primary care physicians.

    For detailed information and events visit the AANP's webpage to find a “one stop shop” for activity and promotional ideas and downloadable resources.

    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."

    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.
