A Basic Ethics Guide in Professional Boundaries
NCCAOM Approved Only, Provider #1208
This course will shine light on the meaning behind professional boundaries and ethics when interacting with patients and staff. Due to the sometimes personal nature of the patient-provider relationship, this is a vital area of conversation so Acupuncture/TCM providers can respond appropriately to situations where professional boundaries may be crossed. Respect, communication, trust, and maintaining the highest level of professionalism with all patients and staff working within the practice will be considered in this course. Professional boundaries and social media, power differentials, professional integrity, sharing of personal information, and potential legal ramifications of unethical conduct with a patient are all discussed in detail.
