Clean Needle Technique Manual for Acupuncturists:
Guidelines and Standards for the Clean and Safe Clinical Practice of Acupuncture, 6th Edition
Clean Needle Technique Manual for Acupuncturists: Guidelines and Standards for the Clean and Safe Practice of Acupuncture, 6TH Edition, represents an extensive update and reorganization of information, including new chapters on Exposure Control Plans, Practitioner Health and Hygiene, and Record Keeping. Also new, is expanded information on blood-borne pathogens and establishing and maintaining a clean and safe office environment.
The format of the Manual has been updated for clear and concise presentation to aid accessing information quickly and includes additional space for notes and commentary. The 6th edition of the Clean Needle Technique Manual for Acupuncturists reflects the efforts of educators and professionals in the acupuncture and Oriental medicine field to bring you the most up-to-date information available, including OSHA and CDC standards and is the definitive guide to the safe, clinical practice of acupuncture.
It is the manual required by the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine to be used in preparation for the Clean Needle Technique Exam. This exam is required for national certification, which in turn, is required by most states for licensure as an acupuncture and Oriental medicine professional. For 25 years, the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncturists, Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, National Acupuncture Foundation, and colleagues across the United States, have collaborated on the establishment and revision of the standards for the clean and safe practice of acupuncture.
The Clean Needle Technique Manual for Acupuncturists, 6th Edition, is the product of that ongoing collaboration. The Clean Needle Technique Manual for Acupuncturists: Guidelines and Standards for the Clean and Safe Practice of Acupuncture, 6TH Edition, is available in English, Chinese and Korean
