The Five Elements of Acupuncture Medical Ethics
This course will look at basic medical ethics and how they apply to Acupuncture and Oriental Medical practices. It will cover the five basic principles/areas every practitioner should know. It then goes on to explore fundamental medical ethics including looking at the works of Hippocrates and Sun Si Miao and discussing the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment as well as NCCAOM’s Code of Ethics. And finally, there will be a discussion of real world ethical issues that practitioners need to deal with in their everyday interactions with patients. The goal of this course is to give a basic theoretical background to medical ethics and then make them relevant to one’s practices.
