Abstract
Purpose Because naturopathic physicians may represent an underutilized public health resource, there is need to comprehensively characterize the care they provide to understand NDs’ role in healthcare systems. Characterization also provides preliminary data for clinical research and quality improvement initiatives. Descriptive data are efficiently sourced from clinical administrative records in computerized practice management systems used in most naturopathic clinics.
