Section 30(1) of the Act imposed the obligation to the practitioners for referring their patient in two situations. The first situation is where the TCM practitioner need to refer patient to the medical practitioner if the patient experiencing an acute medical emergency and second, where the ailment or condition of the patient is beyond the skill, competency or their expertise of the TCM practitioner.

The focus shall be given to the action where the patient may bring the case of breaching the duty of care to court. Therefore, the researchers will highlight the suitable standard of care and approaches to be used in court.
