Practice Guidance

Practice Guidance are established to provide clarity related to specific areas of professional practice, to assist with clinical decision making, and to help registrants better understand their responsibilities and the regulatory requirements set by the College.

While Practice Guidance documents may reference specific requirements for practice, they are different from Practice Standards. Practice Guidance provides registrants with practical advice to inform their decision-making and enhance quality of care, whereas Practice Standards establish the minimum requirements for practice. Practice Standards also serve the public by informing them of the care to expect from a registered traditional Chinese medicine professional.
