At the risk of boring readers senseless, occasionally I write submissions aimed at making the world a better place, one regulatory code at a time. All humour self-edited out, although some sarcasm sneaks through:
“…it is not entirely clear why those CAM practitioners who signed the petitions feel so strongly about their right to receive advertising which is exempt from the TGA safeguards against false claims.”
The RACGP asked me to write their submission for the proposed reforms of the TGA code around advertising therapeutics. More power to the TGA–literally. The current code is more poodle than tiger.
My official submission is on the RACGP website (pdf) or on this website…
