2. Describe the primary interventions delivered through UCSF’s Pediatric Acutherapy consult service; and demonstrate working knowledge of an effective, 1-minute, 3-point acupressure protocol that helps reduce pain, nausea and anxiety.

3. Identify unique barriers that limit patient access to acupuncture medicine including educational, financial, cultural and geographical barriers and explain how inpatient acupuncture programs help expand access to this essential health service.
