Acupuncturists as Professional Practice Clinicians and How that Relates to Hiring & Credentialing in Hospital-based Practice 

Magazine articles

Online National Toolkit Publications --links updated May 2019
From 2015-2016 I was a member of NCCAOM's Hospital-based Practice Task Force.  From these discussions, the committee created documents that are published on NCCAOM's website.  These are available for free to NCCAOM® Diplomates and for a low cost to non-Diplomates through the website.
Note: the 2015/2016 NCCAOM documents are now outdated due to the publication of two major professional milestones related to hospital credentialing
(1) The publication of the BLS occupation code for acupuncturists in 2018 and
(2) the VA Handbook Staffing Code publication of Acupuncturist as a unique and recognized healthcare professional. Please see the related blog posts for more information. For a consultation on this issue, please contact me via the website.
