Topic: Ethics and AOM Safety Regulations

Date: Sunday, June 12, 2022 (9 – 1:30pm) (in-person)
2 hours in ethics, 2 hours in Safety (NCCAOM)

Michael Taromina, Esq., is an expert in acupuncture and Oriental Medicine law, ethics and regulations. For over two decades he has litigated, educated, advocated and authored for the advancement and protection of the AOM profession in the United States. Michael serves as the Chair of National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine's Professional Ethics and Disciplinary Committee. In this capacity, he co-drafted NCCAOM's Code of Ethics and Grounds for Discipline and currently oversees the adjudication of misconduct cases from all over the country. Michael has also served as pro bono legal counsel to many AOM state and national associations.

n 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 10/2022) 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 AO.

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.

Course Fee: $75 for Practitioners, $60 for ESATM Alumni, $60 NJAS Current Member, $50 for current acupuncture students, $45 for current ESATM students.
