B.C. naturopaths could get prescribing power

Medical doctors say proposal as unsafe

B.C. medical doctors are speaking out against a move to allow naturopaths to prescribe medication. If the provincial government goes forward with a proposal to alter its health profession guidelines, B.C. would become the first province to give naturopaths prescribing power. But the B.C. Medical Association argues that the move, which is being touted as means of providing more options for health service delivery, would put patients at risk.
