All courses must include the following components: scope of practice, contraindications, and client management. Scope of practice is what you are educated, competent and authorised to perform as a complementary therapy professional. It includes the roles, responsibilities, functions, activities, and decision-making capacity of a practitioner. In some cases scope of practice is set by professional standards and legislation. Client management should include, but is not limited to, pre-screening clients, how and when to refer a client to a qualified healthcare professional, duty of care and professional boundaries and ethics.
