Acupuncture is a nuanced vocation that requires practitioners to manage complex ethical scenarios. This much-needed international textbook is the first of its kind to provide new and experienced acupuncturists a framework for ethical decision-making. Chapters include the foundations of ethical theory, relationships and boundaries, consent and confidentiality, and integrative medicine. Acupuncture students and practitioners will also benefit from guidance in thinking through ethical dilemmas around finances, trauma, and treatment of clinically tricky conditions such as cancer, infertility, and terminal illness. This textbook strives for an inclusive approach to discussing ethical issues surrounding gender, sexuality, race, implicit bias, mandated reporting and healthcare disparities. Written with teachers in mind, this resource is supplemented with easy-to-use, practical online materials such as teaching outlines, extra case studies for in-depth class discussions, and sample quizzes.
