AROH - Code of Professional Conduct

The following list contains excerpts from AROH's Code of Professional Conduct. In my opinion, the Code does not permit its Registrants to publicly comment on health-related matters when relying on non-valid sources e.g. pseudoscientific and/or conspiracy websites, nor does it permit the use of scare articles and/or images to emotionally manipulate patients and the public.

  • 1. Provide Safe, Ethical and Competent Health Care
    • 1.2 Without limiting or derogating from 1.1 above, Registrants shall fulfill their duty of care toward patients and must:
      • apply their professional capacity as a practitioner to improve the health and well-being of their patients, and attempt to minimise physical or emotional harm
      • interact with patients (and related parties), diligently, honestly, fairly, and in good faith, subject to confidentiality considerations, bearing in mind the patient's position of dependence and the high degree of trust a patient places in the Registrant;
  • 3. Support (present and potential) Patients to Make Informed Decisions
    Registrants shall provide patients with reliable information and professional opinions, and must not conduct their practice, or the advertising thereof, in a way that might reasonably be expected to mislead or deceive a person, as to the nature and identity of the provider, or as to the nature or quality of the services offered.
  • 5. Place the Welfare of Patients above Self-Interest
    In relation to clinical practice and the advertising thereof, the welfare of patients, students, research subjects and the public shall take precedence over a practitioner's self-interest and the interests of employees and colleagues, in accordance with normal consulting practice.
    In particular, Registrants shall refrain from:
    • exploiting patients financially, or misinforming them in relation to health care products or services. When providing advice in a professional capacity, Homoeopaths shall be honest, and explain the advantages and disadvantages, so that the patient can make an informed choice.
    • attempting to dissuade patients from seeking or continuing treatment with a registered medical practitioner, unless on substantial grounds,…
  • 10. Maintain Professional Integrity and Personal Conduct
    Registrants shall at all times conduct their practice, communications and affairs in a courteous, dignified and responsible manner consistent with this Code and the AROH Standards of Practice and so as not to bring the Homoeopathic medical profession into disrepute.
    In particular Registrants must:
    • identify themselves by name, in any communications concerned with their practice or other health related matters,
    • avoid offensive, provocative or misleading statements, publications or conduct
Let me repeat that very last point again:
Registrants must avoid offensive, provocative or misleading statements, publications or conduct.

Anti-vaccination

The evidence presented here shows this practitioner: NOTE: all evidence was available to be viewed by the public at time of capture.

Evidence

Moore being disingenuous in trying to appear neutral about vaccines when, in fact, she is fear-mongering in a promotion of the debunked vaccine-autism link.
From Olive Homoeopathic Healing Group Newsletter 8 (excerpt follows):
"Following on from Newsletter No 2 a year ago, which highlighted Homoeoprophylaxis or HP (Vaccine alternative) Effectiveness and Safety. [original emphases]
Many people are aware that there are possible short term side effects from vaccinations in a small number of receivers. These being a fever, continues [sic] crying and tummy upsets. The medical profession suggest that these symptoms are temporary and mild and they often are.
Non scientific anecdotal evidence suggests that there is a tendency in a small number of receivers of vaccines towards a slowed development in concentration, cognition and coordination following certain vaccinations.
The scope of symptoms that may be effected can also include loss of eye contact, strabismus, inflamed eyes, a constant runny nose, squinting, digestive upsets of diahorrea and/or constipation. Swinging moods and difficulty adapting to changes in the household with siblings, at school and with challenges related to socialisation,
These symptoms are often not seen as a response to a vaccine as the time lapse between the vaccine and the symptoms can be extensive and insidious.
The non scientific anecdotal evidence for there being a link is when there has been a homoeopathic clearing using remedies deemed to be for clearing vaccination toxicity on the immune system for the above symptoms. The results being a reduction in emotional reactivity with more cognition and comprehension, eye and sight issues adjusting to a more normal range and digestive upsets being less frequent."

Moore being disingenuous in her promotion of the benefits of homeoprophylaxis when she is, in fact, fear-mongering about the dangers of vaccination, and inferring that homeoprophylaxis is more effective, more reliable and safer than vaccination.
From Olive Homoeopathic Healing Group Newsletter 2 (excerpt follows):

"There seems to be a lot in the papers and on the news lately about the statistics for WA vaccinations being low and the medical profions [sic] concerns about the health of the future population and our children. My purpose here is to provide readers with information to assist when/if you find yourself in a discussion on this subject or in making a decision about the health of your family. I am not giving my opinion, just information founded on research.
Homoeoprophylaxis or HP (Vaccine alternative)
Effectiveness and Safety.
[original emphasis]
  1. No programme is 100% effective. The effectiveness of HP is shown by a variety of studies at around 90% which is directly comparable to the Medical Vaccine Programme (effectiveness of 90% Homoeoprophylaxis- A fifteen Year clinical Study, the health of the child, 92.3% were positive.
  2. Medicines or remedies used in Homoeoprophylaxis are not toxic. They contain no infectious material of other biological materials.
  3. They contain no chemicals such as preservatives, attenuators, adjuvants and no heavy metals.
  4. Ingestion of remedies is thru the bodies natural defence mechanisms so you are working with the body for protection from disease
  5. Short and long term coverage options
  6. 1 disease is covered at a time. No multiple covers. This creates as little stress as possible on the immune system.
  7. There is reliability of the remedies used to cover the variant strains of the particular disease.
  8. Where there are reactions to HP they are short term and typically very brief and mild. There have been no cases of long term health impairments. It is impossible to get the disease from teh homoeopathic immunisations.
  9. Long term use of HP program is statistically associated with lower levels of chronic illness. Conclusions from the General Health Survey of 5 conditions, asthma, eczema, ear and hearing, allergies and behavioural problems in children between 4 and 12 years of age found that incidences of GP Diagnosis of these diseases were considerably less in children that were treated with HP than the national average.
  10. Effectiveness of vaccines range from 40% to 99%. HP trials published in English in epidemic situations or short term use report on the effectiveness of around 90%
  11. Long term use of homoeoprophylaxis in endemic situations…

Moore [quote]:
"LOOPHOLE FOUND - PLEASE SHARE URGENTLY - AUSTRALIA"

"Dear parents who do not want to vaccinate and still want to send your kids to day care or school - or who NEED family tax benefits."

"Book your children in for TITRE tests. Okay, so it's not fair that we must still inflict this on them to prove our point but there is a caveat in the new Act that says if you have documented ACQUIRED NATURAL IMMUNITY you do not have to vaccinate - looks like other than a few serious exemptions (i.e. they already damaged the child with previous vaccines) the one exemption that stands is blood test proof. One blood test only - demand they test for EVERYTHING with that one blood test so that you don't have to keep going back and torturing your child for the government's sake."

[Moore includes following excerpt from the Act]:
Natural immunity
For an FTB child to meet the immunisation requirements by natural immunity, a medical practitioner must certify in writing that the chold does not require immunisation because they have acquired natural immunity as a result of contracting a disease or diseases.

Example: A child who has previously contracted measles may have developed a natural immunity to contracting the disease again and therefore, does not need to be immunised against measles again.
[end excerpt]

"Act reference: FAAct section 6(6) Natural immunity"

Get your homoeopathic nosode kits now - I am yet to see one person failed by them."

comments made on post:
commenter: "Think about others and vaccinate, hope your child doesn't die because you didn't…"

Moore's reply: "There are great advantages to vaccination, however these are lost in the way they are administered, the number administered and the repitition [sic] administered all at once, so unnecessary and dangerous to the health of our future generations."
