Michael Taromina, Esq. is the Chair of the NCCAOM's Professional Ethics and Disciplinary Committee and co-author of the Code of Ethics, Grounds for Discipline and Procedures for Upholding Professional Conduct. He has an extensive background of legal representation, education and advocacy for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine throughout the country.
PROFESSIONAL ETHICS & LIABILITY Course Description:
In the sensitive, highly-regulated, highly-competitive field of health care, an ethical misconduct complaint, safety violation/citation or lawsuit is not always a result of a practitioner's intentionally bad behavior or lapse of judgment. Experienced and careful AOM practitioners routinely find themselves facing the prospect of damaging professional disciplinary actions, safety violations and/or litigation because they simply failed to receive proper training and utilize effective risk management strategies to maintain a lawful, ethical and safe practice. This program will begin with a detailed overview of the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) newly revised (effective 1/1/2016) Code of Ethics, Grounds for Professional Discipline and Procedures for Upholding Professional Conduct. From there, analysis will be conducted of the relevant state codes, laws and regulations impacting an AOM practice. Attendees will learn the common ethical, safety and legal pitfalls from real AOM cases throughout the country and effective risk management, safety and problem prevention strategies from an expert attorney with decades of experience in the field of AOM.
AOM SAFETY REGULATIONS Course Description:
If administered by a licensed acupuncturist, acupuncture has proven to be safe and effective. There is however significant risk in the performance of this medical procedure such as; infection, unforeseen reactions, pain and inadvertent injury. This course will provide the attendee with basic training in minimizing risk to and maximizing safety of the patient. It will offer analysis of the prevalent federal and state agencies that govern safety regulations impacting an AOM practice both in an individual and group setting.
