Safeguarding Policy

Safeguarding The Patient, The Tradition and The Practitioner

(This policy should be read in conjunction with the IANM Code of Ethics and Practice.)

The IANM Code of Ethics and Practice and the IANM Safeguarding Policy have governance over all members; Students, Graduate Practitioners, Practitioners, Physicians, Hakims and Hakimas, Fellows and Custodians.

Accredited Teachers and Facilitators are also subject to the IANM Code of Ethics and Practice and the IANM Safeguarding Policy.

Further to the IANM Code of Ethics and Practice the IANM Safeguarding Policy would draw attention to the following points:

· Graduate Practitioners will practice under supervision for 12 months following their graduation.
· Permission to use the Association acronyms (e.g. IANM) is restricted to fully registered members as determined by payment of membership fees, qualifications and/or status verified by the Executive Committee.
· Qualifications and status must be verified and approved by the Executive Committee. Any claims to status without written approval will be without the support of the IANM.
· Any and all publicity or promotional material carrying the IANM acronym, logo or title must be approved by the IANM Executive Committee. The IANM accepts no responsibility for any publicity/ promotional materials, or any associated activities or consequences resulting thereof, that have not been previously approved of in writing.
· Similarly, the IANM accepts no responsibility for any promotional declaration or claim made regarding other or associated therapies or practises, in the name of the IANM, which have not been previously declared in writing to the IANM.

To transgress the IANM Code of Ethics and Practice or the IANM Safeguarding Policy will result in immediate suspension of IANM membership and privileges pending an investigation by the Executive Committee.
