The article discusses the Non-Allopathic Therapies in Medical Practice draft guidelines by the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario (CPSO). It states that professional ethics and patient safety may be compromised by the proposal which guide physicians on how they should incorporate and acknowledge alternative therapies in their medical practices. It says that it would compel doctors to propose both non-allopathic and allopathic choices that are clinically appropriate or indicated.
