Something I've been thinking of after watching the news recently. It seems that pseudoscientific professions like
chiromancers chiropractors and naturopaths are getting more and more rights and impact in government, usually through lobbying politicians that don't know any better.
However, aside from some meek attempts from some colleges/associations, there's not a lot of push-back against this sort of BS. And the problem is that once these fields get certain rights, it's just not realistic to reverse them,
matter how many cases of incompetence
or harm we see.
What I'd like to know from any of the readers here is realistic ways healthcare providers can help push back against this. I do a lot of patient education as is, but I just feel like I should be doing more. Most patients I see don't even realize that the majority of actual health care providers think naturopaths and
bone wizards chiropractors are charlatans.
Any insight would be appreciated.
