"THE STATE OF MINNESOTA HAS NOT ADOPTED ANY EDUCATIONAL AND TRAINING STANDARDS FOR UNLICENSED COMPLEMENTARY AND ALTERNATIVE HEALTH CARE PRACTITIONERS. THIS STATEMENT OF CREDENTIALS IS FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY."
Under Minnesota law, an unlicensed complementary and alternative health care practitioner may not provide a medical diagnosis or recommend discontinuance of medically prescribed treatments. If a client desires a diagnosis from a licensed physician, chiropractor, or acupuncture practitioner, or services from a physician, chiropractor, nurse, osteopath, physical therapist, dietitian, nutritionist, acupuncture practitioner, athletic trainer, or any other type of health care provider, the client may seek such services at any time.
The methods of this practice are published to provide useful suggestions for the clients of IMID. If you need advocacy, intervention, or would like to file a complaint, please feel free to contact OCAP at: OCAP Complaint Process and Form to state your case.
IMID does not practice apart from web services it provides, does not keep patient records other than its own, and is only followed by Google using standard website tracking procedures.
It is hoped that just as Modern Medicine is protected by Malpractice legislation, that Responders online, and Complementary Health Care workers in the community, may benefit from open disclosure of factual accounts by others, and that the public policy we develop in this environment will help to educate legislatures. However, until our project is funded, the services we provide can only be illustrated by the people who've already advocated for themselves by using our products. [i]
A brief discussion of consent for treatment may be found here: Consent. Clients may refuse to participate in any or all of these activities and choose to seek help from other Local Agencies at anytime. The right to refuse treatment, or seek consent for your own treatment plan, is described here as a rational approach to the use of the term 'hopeless condition', and illustrates how irrational we can be when we consent to treatment from someone who claims we have a hopeless condition.
