The workshop will then briefly discuss the core methodological issues that make designing, implementing and understanding clinical trials of acupuncture difficult. The remainder of the workshop will outline a desirable content for courses on research and acupuncture to help train faculty, students and practitioners in understanding about acupuncture research so that they can read, understand and develop informed defensible critical thinking about the strengths and weaknesses of studies and review articles and be able to explain these to health care professionals and those involved in regulation of health care practices.
