As a workplace concern, EMF Wireless radiation is not ‘on the radar’ for many TCM practitioners but it should be! Current safety standards continue to be based on outdated threshold limits for THERMAL-ONLY biological effects. As a result, EMF Wireless devices have proliferated the planet with totally inappropriate emission levels. These levels fail to integrate the growing weight-of-evidence warnings about the disastrous NON-THERMAL health effects! Lloyds of London – the biggest Insurance market in the world – will not accept liability for ‘Wi-Fi Injury’ associated with Wi-Fi devices. Lloyds has done its homework on both THERMAL and NON-THERMAL effects and thresholds. National standards are far from unified, especially since the release of the National Toxicology Program (NTP) Study in 2016. This crucial 10-year Study confirmed the causal link between tumours of the Brain and Heart and excessive exposure to 2G and 3G mobile phones. Now the world is facing the 5G threat which will add to the aggregate burden of EMF radiation from digital meters, routers, and wireless devices in the community. EMF wavelengths cannot be effectively blocked but they can be avoided or have their impact lessened to a degree. TCM practitioners need to educate themselves on this urgent health and safety issue, even if it means learning new technical jargon and contradicting the public perception of safe-use technology. In this way, they have the chance to lead the health industry. PLEASE NOTE: While this course does cover safety-related topics, it is not accredited by NCCAOM under the "Safety Category", but rather the "AOM-BIO" category.

This course will look at basic medical ethics and how they apply to Acupuncture and Oriental Medical practices. It will cover the five basic principles/areas every practitioner should know. It then goes on to explore fundamental medical ethics including looking at the works of Hippocrates and Sun Si Miao and discussing the Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment as well as NCCAOM’s Code of Ethics. And finally, there will be a review of real world ethical issues that practitioners need to deal with in their everyday interactions with patients. The goal of this course is to give a basic theoretical background to medical ethics and then make them relevant to one’s practices.
Dr. Greg Sperber is an author and also holds a Masters and Doctor of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. He is a professor at PCOM and speaks internationally on TCM business and drug-herb interactions.

The Ethics lecture on the “Patient-Practitioner Relationship from the Chinese Medical Classics” is perhaps considered one of the best talks on Chinese Medicine. It was first presented in 1990 at the Traditional Acupuncture Institute, Maryland, presented by Father Claude Larre and Elisabeth Rochat de la Vallée. The subject of this lecture has now been included within the body of CTA’s Masters degree, as well as being offered annually to new generations of practitioners. As our profession evolves with the changing landscape of healthcare, this area of study and expertise remains a treasure house of clinical efficacy and healing potential. This course covers the components outlined in this lecture.
