Homeopathy in Sweden | Cam-Regulation

Homeopathy in Sweden

Homeopathy is allowed to be practised by non-medically qualified practitioners outside the healthcare system (28).

Professionals (non-medical homeopaths) may practise on completion of 600 hours of training (60).

A high court case from 2011 must be seen as precedential for allowing the prescription or practice of CAM services by medical doctors and other registered health care professionals (272).
