The Integrative Dry Needling Institute, LLC (IDN) is committed to providing high quality dry needling seminars in a safe and compliant environment for our participants and faculty. Dry needling is an invasive medical procedure that requires very specific and intensive training to assure patient safety and clinical effectiveness. Many state licensure boards require that dry needling training is conducted in a supervised, in- person format, therefore, in the wake of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, IDN has adopted very specific safety polices and procedural processes that will be immediately implemented in our courses.
Measures for protecting participants/faculty from exposure to, and infection with, the novel coronavirus depend on the type of activities being performed. IDN has adapted infection control strategies based on a hazard assessment using appropriate combinations of engineering, administrative controls, and personal protective equipment (PPE) to prevent participant/faculty exposures.
IDN has adopted OSHA’s general guidance to help prevent exposure to COVID-19. For all individuals, regardless of specific exposure risks, it is always a good practice to:
These safety measures were put in place based on the current information and guidelines and will be striclty enforced. As new information and guidelines become available, we will modify our procedures to assure the highest level of safety and compliance with health and government requirements.
Participants that refuse to follow saftey guidelines will be removed from the course.
