What is "hospital-based practice"?
I define this as working at a facility or organization that is accredited by or eligible for accreditation by The Joint Commission. This includes FQHCs, some county clinics and hospitals, and hospice.

The Hospital Practice Handbook Project has multiple platforms (website, blog, and social media page & closed discussion groups) to connect hospital practice East Asian Medicine Practitioners (Acupuncturists) with each other (living resources) and to published resources.
