OSHA Compliance: How Clean Needle Technique Falls Short in the US
by David Kailin
The National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) delegated to the National Acupuncture Foundation (NAF) the task of generating guidelines for the acupuncture profession with respect to safety and disease transmission. There have been five editions of Clean Needle Technique Manual for Acupuncturists: Guidelines and standards for the clean and safe clinical practice of acupuncture (CNT), in several languages. I will critique the fifth and most recent edition (NAF, 2005). The Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (CCAOM) recommends CNT for preparation for the clean needle technique exam, which is required for NCCAOM certification. Some states also require the CNT course and CNT examination as qualifications for acupuncture licensure.
