This seems to be a reasonable change and appropriate, and I support this change. A standard that provides no additional benefit, or that is no longer relevant is appropriate to be rescinded. Of note, I understand the concern from Dr. Leung in the feedback provided on this page, but I would submit that if acupuncture is no longer "alternative therapy" then it is governed by our other standards of practice applicable to how we practice medicine in all we do. Therefore appropriate training and performance would be expected/required for it to be incorporated into one's practice in the same way that we require appropriate training for anything else that is part of our practice. Poor practice/quackery would be no more welcome or condoned in acupuncture than in any other medical act/procedure.
