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.

Special Mention: Cancer Quackery

More disturbingly, Venables is directing people to instructions on how to make your own Black Salve, since it is illegal to sell in Australia.

[Ed note: Black Salve has been the subject of multiple warnings by the TGA since at least March 2012]

Replies to post:
Commenter 1: "The doctor who connected autism and vaccinations has been proven to have fabricated the evidence. His study was retracted but has stuck like mud in the small minds of many. In spite of numerous independent studies, no link between autism and vaccination has ever been found. With a current whooping cough epidemic in qld, one should be very careful about the incorrect information they find and share online. Lives are worth more than uneducated propaganda."

Venables: "I agree. However, I don't push that vaccines cause autism. I just want everyone to have open and questioning minds in order to make informed choices. Yes, there are children with whooping cough, yes, most are vaccinated, noone discusses shedding post vaccination, noone discusses those people who are adversely affected by vaccines. We all need to be aware of all the issues and not blindly believe, whatever your stance is. Happy Valentines Day, share the love"

Commenter 2: "Bit hard to make the comparison, when their population is very limited and controlled. There oculd be many factors in western society that cause Autism. The Amish also avoid electricity, and technology. And who's to say they don't 'dispose' of any defective children when they are born - who keeps records? Too many variables I think."

Venables: "Good points. Reinforces for me that all that is modern and progressive, may not be good. Not sure about them 'disposing' of defective children, doesn't sound like their philosophy though. On their population size, as autism currently affect such a high % of the general population, I don't think the small population size would be the difference. Thank you for your feedback, personally I believe a small % of all media reports, there's usually so much more to the story."

"This post below was so well written, from vac truth, I had to share their info as well as the news report below. They do it better than me!"

"First off, there is so much incorrect information in this article. Too many reporters don't fact check before publishing false data. The Disneyland manufactured outbreak [my emphasis] was NEVER traced back to any individual, let alone an unvaccinated individual and the measles strain that was circulating in those supposedly exposed was a strain from the Philippines. Those who receive the MMR vaccine can shed and expose others to the measles and measles has never been eradicated even though claims have been made that it has. About this article, "Traveling by air may get even more complicated if a reported plan by major carrier airlines requiring passengers to be vaccinated comes to fruition." Another ridiculous ploy to push for more vaccine uptake while not addressing the reasons why more and more are saying no to these toxic vaccines." [my emphasis]

That's the FDA safety level, meaning

[content] "Fans of the AVN
There seems to be quite a bit of confusion about changes to the Family Tax Benefits(FTB) from January 01 2016. The only Family Tax Benefit item that is subject to a vaccination requirement is Family Tax Benefit A supplement, which is paid once a year and is approximately $720 per child. Fortnightly FTB payments will not change in relation to vaccination status.

This is the situation from 01 January 2016 in relation to vaccination status if the No Jab No Pay laws are not overturned/repealed prior to then.

NB: There may be other changes to FTB eligibility criteria not pertaining to vaccination status. For example, age or income tests. This post is strictly about the impact of No Jab No Pay laws (eligibility based on vaccination status), not changes to other eligibility criteria."

Most citizens of the United States are not even aware that there is something called the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, and that if you suffer harm or death due to a vaccine, that you cannot sue the manufacturer of the vaccine, but you must sue the Federal Government and try to obtain compensation from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Trust Fund, which is funded by taxes paid on vaccines"

AUTISM: STILL THINK IT'S
better diagnosis?
1980 - 1 in 10,000
2002 - 1 in 150
2012 - 1 in 88
2013 - 1 in 50
THINK AGAIN

[content] "The Thinking Moms' Revolution
Any parent who has ever had to get an autism diagnosis for their child knows just how hard it is. So many doctors and psychologists go out of their way NOT to use the A word, they say that you're an overanxious mother and a bunch of other condescending remarks. It is SO hard to get our children properly diagnosed. Better diagnosis? THINK again."

"Eric Li - here is some information from the United States - please note, the US has been using routine Hep B vaccination since the mid-1980s:…"

"And please see the following table on the incidence of Liver Cancer in Australia since 1982 - again, rather than seeing a marked decline after the introduction of the Hep B vaccine, we have seen an enormous increase and the death rate has likewise increased substantially since that time…"

"We are constantly told that the reason for the introduction of the Hep B vaccine was a need to reduce the incidence and deaths from liver cancer. Yet even in countries like the US and Australia where the vaccine has been implemented on a mass basis for almost 30 years, rather than seeing a decline in incidence and deaths, we have seen a very large increase. So the vaccine has been a failure or - perhaps even worse - has been a contributor to this increase. Either way, I hope you still think that this information is compelling @Eric Li and that it makes you question a bit more, the infromation you have been given on the benefits of vaccination and whether or not that information has a true basis in fact.
