It’s easy to learn at home and at your convenience. 2 hours is all it takes to read the Comprehensive PowerPoint presentation that organizes the medical ethics material in an easy to assimilate manner! 2 NCCAOM PDA’s awarded. $50.

Join author, international presenter, teacher and clinician Dr. Skya Abbate, MA Sociology, MA Pastoral Studies, MA Bioethics and Health Policy, DOM (NM), Dipl Ac, Dipl CH, Executive Director of Southwest Acupuncture College, Santa Fe and Boulder, and Founder of SkyBird Media in her series of medical ethics courses to meet your NCCAOM Ethics Recertification.

Medical Ethics: The Spirit of Medicine and How We Practice

In this first in a series of medical ethics courses for the acupuncturist, Skya Abbate takes the learner in a logical manner from the preliminary question of why we need medical ethics in the profession through to creating your own professional code of ethics by which to guide your practice. The predominant bioethical frameworks of nonmaleficence, beneficence, autonomy and social justice are explored from traditional perspectives and connected to the practice of acupuncture and Oriental medicine. Additional topics include the importance of knowing and practicing according to your state law, Confucian ethics, and exploration of traditional Western and Chinese medical codes of ethics such as those of Hippocrates and Sun Simiao and the NCCAOM. This first course prepares the practitioner to continue thinking about ethical issues in Oriental medicine and how one can build a just society through the building of one’s medical practice.
• Learn how to write your own professional code of ethics for your practice
• How to apply the four principles of medial ethics to an acupuncture practice
• Identify the scope of practice, acupuncture law, and licensing requirements in the practitioner’s practice location
