This book is primarily intended to train acupuncturists to assess many dimensions of risk, and to implement practical strategies for the prevention of harm. More generally, it guides all complementary medicine providers toward practicing safely in the social, legal and medical contexts of America.

Among many other merits, this text offers an authoritative review of federal OSHA and FDA regulations applying to acupuncture, based on extensive dialogue with, and review by, agency personnel. This text should be required reading in acupuncture colleges, and should not be overlooked by current practitioners. Administrators of clinics and insurance plans where acupuncture is being integrated would do well to consult A.R.M. It will doubtless prevent many lawsuits...and will probably save a few lives!From the Author:
Based on what I learned in the course of researching this text, I had to radically re-train myself. I rest much easier knowing my office protocols and clinical procedures now meet prevailing medico-legal standards. It is not difficult to substantially reduce the risks of harm, when you fully understand the dimensions of harm and the strategies of risk control.
