Chinese Medicine practitioner: First disciplinary case

Health Care Complaints Commission v Liu [2017] NSWCATOD 18 is said (at [43]) to be the the first case in which a Chinese medicine practitioner was coming before the Tribunal.

The allegations made against the practitioner included the failure to make a proper assessment of the patient before recommending fasting treatment; the making of an arrangement for treatment including remedial massage and acupuncture to be provided to the patient by staff who were not registered Chinese medical practitioners and not adequately skilled; and the failure to keep adequate records.

A finding of unsatisfactory professional conduct was made in relation to some allegations.
