SAR's Evidence Based Assessments

Every month, an average of 100 acupuncture-related articles are published in more than 50 journals.  To stay current, your team would need to spend hours combing through journals – practically impossible.  This is where the Society for Acupuncture Research (SAR) can help.   If you are not currently a member of SAR, consider joining today so that you can benefit from the breadth and depth of SAR’s expertise.

SAR’s Evidence Based Assessments are based on the same reports created for use by insurance companies in substantiating insurance claims, in curriculum development, to generate innovative hypotheses, and educating physicians and patients.

As an acupuncture professional, whether you’re a practitioner, researcher, or educator, you need to stay informed and up-to-date on your field of practice.  With a solid base of knowledge, you will be better equipped to provide superior service to those who come to you for help.  Therefore, you need to be aware of relevant research that supports, or sometimes negates, acupuncture treatment for various conditions. 

What is the best way to stay informed?  You could spend countless hours combing through research studies to analyze and compile results to inform your work.  Or, you could keep the status quo, and receive the same results you have now.

Access to SAR's library of Evidence Based Assessments for acupuncture is a key benefit of membership, and is also available as a stand-alone subscription product.
