The CPD course is aimed as a refresher course for those wishing to refresh their knowledge on key aspects of acupuncture practice. There will be 3 interconnecting lectures which pull together a common theme of optimising acupuncture treatment. The lectures explore the key pain mechanism theories which underpin acupuncture point selection, the adverse effects of acupuncture, and the key needling considerations which ensure optimum treatment delivery.
Learning Outcomes:
- To review the literature related to acupuncture related adverse incidents and demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the adverse effects which can arise following acupuncture needling
- To demonstrate ability to link practice with safety guidelines and adverse incidents
- To successfully relate own information in informed consent literature to adverse incident and safety guidelines
- To review the theoretical basis of Western pain mechanisms and demonstrate an ability to link these mechanisms to a series of case studies to demonstrate optimum practice
- To demonstrate the application of safe and effective acupuncture needling to appropriate musculoskeletal conditions within a physiotherapy problem-solving paradigm
- To review a range of alternative needling approaches such as superficial and deep needling and demonstrate an ability to apply these techniques to different cases.
