Course Background/Outline

All AACP approved Foundation courses have been accredited by the AACP. AACP tutors have completed Advanced Acupuncture Training to Post- Graduate Diploma or MSc level and all have extensive experience in clinical practice. The purpose is to bring Acupuncture into the world of evidence based pain management, progressing with its use in evidence-based management of selected disorders. It offers unique ability to integrate Acupuncture within Physiotherapy clinical management.

All participants are taught effective, safe, efficient Acupuncture treatment which will both complement Physiotherapy management and provide relevant up to date research results, attempting to integrate Acupuncture philosophy within a scientific paradigm. All participants are taught accurate point identification, core standards of needling, safety and effectiveness together with physiology, anatomy and integrated patient management.

The course will equip participants with grounding in current NHS and private practice policy providing sound arguments for its use within clinical reasoning and effective practice, substantiated by current research.

Accredited tutors are experienced clinicians, clinical educators and have a background in providing educational material within University and postgraduate teaching areas.
