TCM is gaining popularity all over the world, yet its safety and possible “side effects” are not sufficiently recorded or shared with the general public and medical profession. Capitalizing on the rapid expansion of TCM Clinical Research in the last two decades, this course aims to provide viewers with the available and most up-to-date data recorded on the safety and possible “side effects”. Contents include:

  • Brief review of the basics of clinical research and evidence-based medicine
  • Review of Safety & Side Effects data from clinical studies
  • Discussion on the relevance of these findings and in comparison, with western medicine and medical procedures
  • Integrating these findings into your day-to-day practice
  • Goals and Outlines

    1. Update-to-date review of the latest research data on:

    • Overall safety of acupuncture
    • Common adverse events & safety issues with acupuncture
    • Data on specific populations such as children, pregnant women and others

    2. Perspective on safety of acupuncture vs. western medicine and medical procedures
