La Trobe Report submission October 2006

To the Victorian Dept of Human Services regarding the La Trobe University Report: The Practice and Regulatory Requirements of Naturopathy and Western Herbal Medicine. The NHAA strongly supports and endorses the recommendations made in the report and believes the report should be disseminated widely through the auspices of the Australian Health Minister’s Conference (AHMC), the Australian Health Minister’s Advisory Council (AHMAC) and the Council of Australian Government (COAG) to ensure a coordinated and standard national approach to regulation.
