College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia

Jurisprudence Handbook

The purpose of the Jurisprudence Handbook is to provide information on the ethical and legal framework within which TCM Practitioners and Acupuncturists are expected to practice in British Columbia. It is expected that registrants will use the Handbook as a clinic reference manual, students will use the Handbook as a guide in their studies, and public health authorities and members of the public will use the Handbook as a source of information.

A significant portion of the Handbook was adapted from the Jurisprudence Course Handbook developed by the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario. The College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of British Columbia gratefully acknowledges permission from the College of Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists of Ontario to adapt the document for use in British Columbia.
