“Family physicians are concerned that terminology associated with their profession — such as ‘family medicine’ — could be misused by people who are not medical doctors, according to the results of an informal internal poll by the College of Family Physicians of Canada. The CFPC, which represents about 38,000 physicians who practise family medicine, solicited feedback from its members in April and received approximately 4,400 responses. The poll found 92 per cent of respondents support legally protecting such terms, and 89 per cent want the college to put its time and resources into doing so.”
