Practitioners, facilities, and researchers encounter repeated requests from patients regarding the use of complementary and integrative medicine (CIM) and there are few who do not know the benefits of its use. But the legal aspects of prescribing or denying CIM treatment are new and harder to navigate, requiring the guidance of lawyers, policy makers, and other practitioners.

  • The regulations for credentialing and how to comply
  • Techniques for minimizing liability risks for institutions and individuals
