Burns, Rebecca (2005) Osteopaths' views on prescription rights: a qualitative pilot study. Coursework Master thesis, Victoria University.

Abstract

Background: Osteopathy was founded as a drugless medical alternative in the USA. The Osteopaths Registration Board of Victoria is currently considering the advocacy of limited prescription rights for osteopaths. Conclusions: Due to the variety of issues that emerged, further research is warranted. A more extensive survey of the profession is recommended. This minor thesis was written by a post-graduate student as part of the requirements of the Master of Health Science (Osteopathy) program.
