dc.description.abstract The implementation of the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme for the Health Professions incorporates the registration of acupuncturists under the Chinese Medicine Board of Australia from 1 July 2012. Other registered health professionals will still be able to use the title acupuncturist if their board determines that they are suitably qualified to have their registration endorsed for acupuncture. This paper aims to identify the various education and training standards underpinning the practice of acupuncture among the health professions in Australia and create a reference point to determine the impact of registration on future acupuncture education standards. A literature search was conducted to identify scholarly works on acupuncture education standards as well as a search of standard setting bodies and course providers. Results were tabulated for comparison. There is very little literature on acupuncture education standards in Australia despite its practice by a diverse range of health professions. en_US
