It’s time to applaud the two-years plus efforts of the terminology resource workgroup, summit participants and all PATH Intl. members who took part in the research and development of, Optimal Terminology For Services That Incorporate Horses To Benefit People: A Consensus Document. Furthermore the workgroup is honored to share the document has been published in the JACM – Paradigm, Practice and Policy Advancing Integrative Health (The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine)
To quickly refresh memories, this group (link to bios) and initiative were organized for the purpose of helping to guide the process of developing baseline terms and definitions for dissemination and education throughout the field. The need for this endeavor was high as inconsistencies and disparities have been negatively impacting the industry by promoting confusion about the types of services being provided.
PATH Intl. suggests reading the full documents to enjoy and employ its recommendations. However, it is important to note the association does not expect immediate compliance! PATH Intl. will be updating materials alongside members. We have developed a two-year plan to educate and assist members and centers in utilizing the uniform terminology.
