Acupuncture Training - Membership of Professional Networks - the CSP View

The CSP View

The CSP has provided ALIED with a statement on Acupuncture Training Courses and membership of Professional Networks.

Acupuncture Training for Physiotherapists

"A Physiotherapist who wishes to practise any modality must ensure that they are educated, trained and competent in that modality.

The CSP understands that Physiotherapists who wish to develop Acupuncture skills may choose from a range of educational providers which include a range of private, professional body, and/or Higher Education Institutes. It is for the individual Physiotherapist to select a course which best meets their own needs. The CSP does not specify which course a CSP member must choose."

Membership of Professional Networks

"Practising 'physiotherapy' is predicated upon being HCPC registered which in turn means completion of an HCPC -approved pre-registration Physiotherapy programme. Beyond that, practising any individual Physiotherapy modality is not predicated upon further belonging to a specified Professional Network. Membership of a Professional Network is a personal choice made by a member and is not a condition of practice.

Up until recently, the Statutory Regulation of Acupuncture was being considered by the Government, and it looked as if only courses delivered by AACP, BMAS [or BDAS for dentists] would be recognised by the regulator as conferring adequate training. However, the government has now dropped plans to statutorily regulate Acupuncture, so there is now no restriction on where a person can look to for suitable training courses."

Acupuncture in Physiotherapy

The Government's recent decision not to introduce statutory regulation [SR] of Acupuncture has a significant effect on Physiotherapists who wish to use Acupuncture within their clinical practice.

It has also caused tutors at ALIED, along with many other experienced Physiotherapist Acupuncture Tutors, to reappraise our affiliations.

Clinical Support

All students who have attended ALIED training courses may request clinical support from ALIED if they are having problems with a patient or with their clinical use of Acupuncture.

Simply E-Mail your query to ALIED and we will do our best to give you prompt, evidence-based advice on the problem you are experiencing.

Have a Course at Your Location

Have you thought about an Acupuncture course at your location?

You can either run the course yourself, or ALIED will organise the whole thing.
