Auricular Point Acupressure to Manage Pain
This lecture by Dr. Chao Hsing Yeh, PhD, MSN, RN, FAAN, Professor and Director of the Biophysiological Lab at Johns Hopkins University, School of Nursing, will cover an overview of the auricular point acupressure (history and development from acupuncture), clinical evidence of pain management, and the potential mechanism for pain relief.

Auricular point acupressure was developed from traditional Chinese Medicine auricular acupuncture and evolved into a modern science in the 1980s by Paul Nogier, MD. Different from needle acupuncture, auricular point acupressure is a non-invasive (needleless), active treatment, and self-management for patients with pain. Given that healthcare providers have limited tools to help patients self-manage their pain, auricular point acupressure has the potential to overcome barriers in pain management at multiple levels, including at the level of providers (by adding an additional safe, effective, and rapid pain treatment approach to their toolbox), and patients (to provide a non-invasive, low-cost strategy that can foster daily self-management).

Learning objectives:
- Demonstrate the knowledge of auricular point acupressure (history and development from acupuncture).
- Identify the clinical evidence of auricular point acupressure on pain management
- Demonstrate the knowledge of the potential mechanism on how auricular point acupressure achieves pain relief.
