What is Net of Knowledge?

SERIES OVERVIEW

Designed to upskill established acupuncturists to expand their acupuncture practice, this course tackles some of the more chronic and complex pediatric conditions that western medicine finds difficult to treat. With a focus on diet and lifestyle advice for parents in addition to acupuncture point protocols, you will learn different approaches to infections, mucus congestion and birth trauma which may result in behavioral difficulties. Childhood insomnia and bedwetting - disruptive conditions for the whole family - are addressed in detail with practical solutions and fast-acting treatments.

COURSE OVERVIEW

This module is part of a series that provides you with the essential tools to expand your acupuncture practice to include treating babies and children. This module covers "Lingering Pathogenic Factors" – an event which includes ‘infection’ by a virus or bacterium, and also includes immunisation. An infection which might keep an adult in bed with a fever for a few days can cause lasting damage to a child. The three common patterns will be taught: Spleen Qi Xu, Retention of Phlegm, Retention of very thick phlegm. This module also includes chronic cough and asthma which are the most commonly seen complaints in a children's clinic. And although not as common, the effects of cranial compression will also be taught in this module.

Title: Module 5: Insomnia and Bed Wetting (Enuresis)

CEUS/PDAs: 5
Approved: Florida, NCCAOM, Standard Certificate
Length: 5 Hrs
Access Period: Lifetime

COURSE OVERVIEW

This module is part of series and covers two important topics: insomnia and enuresis (bed wetting). Insomnia in babies and children is very common and Acupuncturists are frequently asked to help. Parents kept awake by their children are often desperate to try anything, as they themselves are exhausted. Nocturnal Enuresis is described as involuntary and repeated passage of urine during sleep. It is very common in young children. The age when it is considered to be a real problem depends on the child and the parents, usually when the child starts to spend time away from home staying with friends when it is then an embarrassment. With virtually no western medical cure, acupuncture is an effective solution.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • Understand the underlying causes of insomnia in babies and children.
  • Learn how to effectively treat childhood insomnia while coaching parents with the best strategies.
  • Understand nocturnal enuresis from a TCM perspective and how best to manage it.
  • Learn how important the family dynamic and home environment is and the effects on bed wetting and insomnia.

DISCLAIMERS

*CEU/CPD ApprovalsSome accreditation bodies have course approval expirations. If the approval expires, you will see a notice next to the name with a date of expiration: "[Until YYYY/MM/DD]". Please factor this date into your own renewal deadline. If an approval expires, you will be able to request that it is renewed and we will submit it for you within 2 business days. Renewals normally come back to us after 30 days. If your accreditation body is not listed under the "Approved" section, you may find it under the "Pending" section. That means that it is either currently pending approval, or that it is available for you to request: "[Upon Request]". New course approvals usually come back to us after 45 days. We use an automated system within our platform that allows you to make these requests in an easy and convenient way. Just visit the course page in your Net of Knowledge account and click the "Request Approval" button at the top. Each "Course and CEUs/CPDs" purchase grants you 1 request per accreditation body. If you request a course approval and do not complete it before its new expiration date, you will need to purchase another "CEU/CPD Add-On" to make another request. If the course is ineligible for approval with an accreditation body due to their subject-matter policies, it will be listed as "[Ineligible]", and no requests will be possible for the course. Because this is a series, approvals are done on a course-by-course basis. If you see "[Partial Approval]" that means that not all courses have approval at this time. You will be able to request the remaining approvals if "[Remaining Upon Request]" is listed in the Pending section.
