Osteopathic Practice Standards


D10. You must consider the contributions of other health and care professionals to optimise patient care.

To achieve this, you should:

  1. Treat other health and care professionals with respect, acknowledging the role that they may have in the care of your patients. Any comments that you make about other healthcare professionals should be honest, valid and accurate.
  2. Understand the contribution of osteopathy within the context of healthcare as a whole.
  3. Follow appropriate referral procedures when referring a patient, or one has been referred to you.
  4. Work collaboratively with other healthcare providers to optimise patient care, where such approaches are appropriate and available.
