Avoiding Trouble: Ethics and Safety
with Michael A. Taromina, Esq.
In health care, complaints and lawsuits are not always the result of intentional bad behavior or a lapse of judgment. Sometimes, experienced TEAM (Traditional East Asian Medicine) practitioners find themselves facing the prospect of damaging disciplinary actions or litigation because of a lack of proper training or a failure to utilize effective risk management strategies. In this class, we will consider the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) Code of Ethics, Grounds for Professional Discipline and Procedures for Upholding Professional Conduct. Then, we will analyze relevant state codes, laws and regulations impacting TEAM practice. Attendees will learn common ethical, safety and legal pitfalls from real TEAM cases. As important will be learning effective risk management, safety and problem prevention strategies from an expert attorney with decades of experience in TEAM.
Presenter: Michael Taromina, Esq. is the Chair of the NCCAOM’s Professional Ethics and Disciplinary Committee and co-author of the Code of Ethics, Grounds for Discipline and Procedures for Upholding Professional Conduct. He has an extensive background of legal representation, education and advocacy for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine throughout the country.
All proceeds will go to benefit the Center for Integrated Care
