***New update to page 34 of Jurisprudence Course Handbook (September 2013)***
Please note that the footnote to page 34 should read:
"They are: chiropody, chiropractic, massage therapy, nursing, occupational therapy, physiotherapy and dentistry. Naturopaths regulated under the Drugless Practitioners Act have their own exemption and will be added to the list when the new College is fully established. There are members of other Colleges, such as traditional Chinese medicine and physicians, who can perform acupuncture under the authorization of their profession-specific Acts. "
***Correction to page 41 of Jurisprudence Course Handbook***
Please note that the second last paragraph to page 41 should read:
"Again, the report must be made in writing to the Registrar of the College to whom the alleged health care provider belongs. The report has to contain the reporting practitioner's name and the grounds of the report. Under this mandatory reporting obligation the name of the patient can be included without the patient's consent, so long as it is not involving sexual abuse. The report must be made within thirty days of receiving the information. If it appears that patients are continuing to be harmed, the report must be made right away."
Candidates are encouraged to start studying the handbook on their own or with peers in small study groups as soon as possible to prepare for registration application.

Irrespective of whether a candidate chooses to pursue Route 1 or Route 2, a successful candidate will have to pass the open-book multiple choice test with a score of 60% or more.
