    • With the opioid crisis in the U.S. and Acupuncturists' ability to treat pain and help reduce patient's need for opioids, we, as a profession, need to consistently document patient pain levels.  This is a very useful, easy to learn (and apply) metric.  For a deeper dive into this topic, sign up for the short course.
