Clean Needle Technique (CNT) Review

Leslie Monarch DAOM, L.Ac.

Clean Needle Technique review will be a reminder of the principles of CNT with detail relating to handwashing, clean fields, and the life expectancies of viruses like Hep B on surfaces in the office. I will review the newest version of the CNT handbook with attention to appendix sections that weren’t in the previous volume. There will be time for questions about procedure, etc. 2 CEU’s pending – Safety

Leslie Monarch, DAOM, L.Ac, completed their Master’s and Doctoral degrees at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine in 1996 and 2011 respectively. They were distinguished by the college at graduation with honor at the Master’s level and given a Fellowship by the college to assist with tuition at the Doctoral level. They have been a part of the faculty since 1996, first as a teaching assistant and then as an instructor of acupuncture techniques, point location and five element theory. Dr. Joe Coletto taught Leslie ethics through his impeccable example and they strive to teach others by his example. The oath of practice, as administered at OCOM, is a guiding force in their ethical map.

In 2015, they were trained by the Council of Colleges of Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine to train students in Clean Needle Technique. They have been teaching the training and since the pandemic proctoring the exams online.

The Oath of Practice will be a review of the oaths of OCOM, the state association, the NCCAOM with some time spent considering the history of oaths related to Chinese medical practice. Looking at similarities and differences of the aforementioned, we will consider how we employ them in decision making in our daily practices. 2 CEU’s pending – Ethics
