DESCRIPTION
This class discusses acupuncture service logistics, highlighting what is consistent throughout the hospital and what might be unique depending on specific hospital Departments. What are the procedures for referral, consultation, permission to treat, consenting and charting? Safe and effective treatment must mesh well with the department's work flow; how does work flow differ depending on floor or Department? We discuss acupuncture consult and treatment provided in Surgery, Orthopedic surgery, Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Labor and Delivery, Pediatrics, Obstetrics, Oncology, Pain and Palliative, Hospice and Rehab care. Sessions for patients who are referred, permitted, consented and ‘ready to treat’ must be coordinated with nursing and work of other therapists. Considerations are detailed for work in specific departments, and for setting up service in a new department. Whether a new or sustained service, an acupuncturist does more than treat; we ‘represent and recruit’. This Module identifies areas appropriate for an ‘elevator pitch ’of evidence that is detailed in Module 4. Professional logistics and interactions described from an operational point of view in this Module are illustrated in a more personal way in Module 6: A Day in the Life: Preparation and Pacing for Inpatient Care’
