Just last month, the FDA's Dietary Supplement program manager told Expo West, to paraphrase his statement, "that FDA is about to receive much more money and will be able to saturate the field with inspectors... a large number increase in our force out there... largest supplement firms shouldn't have a problem funding, but some mom and pop operations will be lost... recommends that small firms band together so the new rules don't break their backs..."

If you have ever been interested in how the dietary supplement industry operates, if you are currently managing a dietary supplement company, or even if you have even considered starting your own "remedy product line" this would be an absolutely amazing course.

Complementary and Alternative Modalities (CAM)

Instructor: Ralph Fucetola, J.D.

Education: 1.5 Continuing Education Units
Class Type: Holistic and Natural Health Student

Course Overview

This seminar is intended for Natural (sometimes called "CAM") Health Practitioners in every area of practice. With State and Federal Governmental agencies determined to stamp out all non-pharmaceutical focused treatments, if you are an advanced health practitioner, you need accurate, up to the minute information on:

  • Standard Operating Procedures
  • Disclaimers
  • Disclosures
  • Informed Consent
  • Risks to Private Practitioners
  • Practical advice on structuring your practice to protect yourself and your patients
  • Forbidden words
  • How to present what you do and why you do it
  • Waivers

Alternative health practices can be generally defined as traditional or other practices that are used by individuals, often for self-help, to achieve and maintain a healthy status, either on their own or complementary to standard medical care. These practices do not include the potentially dangerous use of invasive techniques and toxic drugs that are the province of licensed medicine. They do, however, include developing therapies and non-standard approaches that are outside of licensed medicine. These are sometimes referred to as "Complementary and Alternative Modalities" (CAM) of Advanced Health Care.

Common sense, talent and experience may make you a great practitioner, but it takes legal information and careful strategic communication to keep you out of trouble and in practice. Join us for this essential course as Ralph brings the knowledge and understanding needed to protect yourself and enhance your professionalism with your clients.
