1. Ethical and Legal Considerations for Advanced HealthCare (’CAM’) Practitioners

Presenter: Ralph Fucetola JD
Live Webinar: Thursday, Revised and Updated: May 6, 2009 - 8 PM EDT
Fee: $99.99 - includes eBook with SOP formats

Video Introduction:


This seminar is intended for Natural (sometimes called ‘CAM’) health practitioners in every area of practice. With the State and Federal Government 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 advise on structuring your practice
to protect yourself and your client/patients
* Forbidden words
* How to present what you do and why you do it
* Waivers

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. Tuition includes a $30 tax deductible donation to the Natural Solutions Foundation and an information-filled eBook with practical forms to use. The information in the eBook would require several hours of legal retainer time to produce.

Live Webinar: May 10, 2009 - Noon EDT
Tuition: $199.99

“Your papers must be in order.”

Are your ingredients “grandfathered” under DSHEA?
Have you filed your Structure and Function Claims Notices with FDA?
Do you have your SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures)?
Is your web site Site Use Statement up-to-date?
Is your Substantiation Notebook ready?

You must be better organized before the FDA inspection!

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 increase in our force out there… largest supplements 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…"
