Questions? Please visit our FAQ page. Thank you for your purchase!

Is your practice safe?

  • Is your documentation adequate for defense in litigation or complaints to regulatory boards? Does it include needle angle at high-risk locations?
  • Do you know what standards the CNT manual (7th ed.) sets for minimizing pneumothorax risks? Sterilizing cups, gua sha tools? Preventing and managing heat lamp and moxa burns? Medical record-keeping?
  • Do you routinely provide and effectively document a verbal, face-to-face informed consent regarding risks, prior to treatment?
  • Do you know what social media marketing techniques are legal vs. illegal, as well as what terms to avoid using on your website?
  • Do you know how to avoid triggering insurance audits for suspected over-billing?
  • Can you recognize when you're in a "high-risk" relationship with a patient, and manage the situation without charges of discrimination in health care or "patient abandonment" that risk license suspension?
  • What would you do/not do if you were concerned someone was going to file a malpractice suit against you?

If you're unsure, these Classes and E-books are for you!

I invite you to benefit from my experience as an Expert Witness in malpractice litigation, complaints to regulatory boards, and insurance audits to help you manage risks while supporting sustainable practice growth.

--Anthony Von der Muhll, L.Ac., DNBAO, DAOM

  • Standards of Care and best practices for avoiding, managing, and documenting safety procedures for:
    • Pneumothoraces: screening for risk-elevating factors; high-risk locations, safe vs. unsafe needle angles and depths
    • Nerve trauma and arterial puncture: high-risk locations, safe vs. unsafe needle angles and depths, and monitoring during needle penetration
    • Heat lamp and moxa burns: screening for risk-elevating factors; recognizing and managing accidental burns
    • Suction cups, including "wet" and "fire" cupping: knowing contraindications and screening for risk-elevating factors; avoiding and managing injuries

    • Fee-splitting and kickbacks: common, but usually illegal
    • Risk-elevating prepaid treatment "packages" and concierge practices, vs. safer alternatives
  • Risks of social media marketing; managing negative reviews
  • Best practices in fee-setting, collecting co-pays, and providing discounts
  • Avoiding insurer audits: best practices in coding and billing
