TOPICS THE TALK WILLFOCUS ON:
- What is the political climate for naturopathy in Australia and globally? What are the challenges and what are the opportunities?
- How does the profession rise to political challenges such as the recent private health insurance reforms? What can the profession do to counter such developments?
- How does the topic of registration fit into these issues? Is registration likely to occur for the profession? What would it mean for the profession if it did or didn’t happen?
- How can the profession become more politically involved and politically influential? What are the practical steps for associations and practitioners?
