    Hello to all of you.

    I am interested to hear your views on the Advertising guidelines s.6.4 on the use of the title Dr (Podiatrist).

    Respecting the root word Podiatrist is Greek for Podi = Foot and Iatrist = Doctor.
    It would make sense to call oneself a Foot Doctor.

    According to the guidelines one must clearly identify that you are not a GP.

    This policy change is it because of APRAh, or to catch up with the dental and chiros who use the title??

    Thank you in advance.

    The AHPRA advertising guideline was developed in 2010 to reflect the situation at the time in most of Australia. Qld, most notably restricted the use of the title Dr and Surgeon prior to the National Law. So in Qld, of all registered health professionals, only Medical Practitioners, Dentists and those with PhDs, could use the title Dr. Now anyone in Australia can use the title, as long as it is clear what it pertains to. So not really any change for most of the country, just a clarification.
