Event description

Description

The aim of this course is to teach qualified Acupuncturists the practical skills required to use Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy (APIT) safely and effectively in their own clinic. The course features:

  • Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine, bio-medical and evidence-based training
  • Workshop and “hands-on” training for practical clinical skills you can use straight away
  • Safety, professionalism, and advanced practice techniques

At the completion of studies, participants will be able to:

  • Apply the principles of Acupuncture, bio-medicine and evidence-based practice to the subject of APIT.
  • Identify professional, ethical and legal considerations of APIT.
  • Explain and employ the asepsis and infection control guidelines for APIT.
  • Demonstrate competency in the safe delivery of intramuscular and subcutaneous APIT techniques.
  • Evaluate and describe relative and absolute contraindications, and the management of adverse reactions in APIT.
  • Use protocols to treat difficult conditions such as greater trochanteric bursitis and midportion Achilles tendinopathy

“Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy has been used by acupuncturists in China for the last 50 years to treat a variety of conditions, using both TCM and biomedical methodologies.”

CPD points: 11hrs

Participation:


Because this is a hands-on course there are times where you will be asked to participate as both the practitioner or the patient. You will be asked to sign a consent form (supplied on day 1 of course) stating you understand and accept the inherent risks of undergoing APIT. If you have any reason you are not able to participate as a patient please inform us before the course starts.
This seminar contains a number of assessments both written and practical. All components must be completed successfully in order to receive a certificate of completion.

Catering:

Morning and afternoon tea is provided.

Number of Participants

A small class size provides a better learning environment for the practical component of this course so numbers are strictly limited.
