Aesthetic Compliance Guide Released by National Aesthetic Accreditation Agency Founder(April 07, 2014)
Reno, NV (PRWEB) April 07, 2014
Its no secret, medical spa standards of practice have long been misunderstood. Regulations vary widely from state-to-state and, in light of a movement toward industry professionalization, they seem to be constantly changing. Paula Rood, longtime practice consultant and founder of the National Aesthetic Accreditation Agency, noticed that even longtime practice owners are having a problem keeping up with evolving notions of compliance.
The resources that have previously been made available to aesthetic practice owners were painfully inconsistent, confusing, and really didnt provide a guide for how to actually become compliant, says Rood. Because the industry is cracking down on non-compliance, I saw this as a real disservice to well-meaning practice owners.
Roods book covers current and upcoming standards and regulations to ensure practice owners are poised for industry changes. It is formatted as a guide, in simple language, providing easy-to-implement steps. In addition to adherence to industry regulations, Rood offers additional information on decreasing practice liability and ensuring optimal patient care.
Due to the uncertainty surrounding traditional medicine in light of emerging laws that affect the amount of money insurers will pay for treatment, an influx of doctors have adopted cosmetic medicine as a private-pay opportunity.
"My circumstances, such as they are in medicine today, led me to open a medical spa and give up my other practice, says Dr. Michael Glass, owner of Esteem Medical Spa & Salon in Reno, NV. I quickly learned that other physicians had the same idea and competition in the area of Cosmetic Medicine is fierce. And finding the right help is terribly difficult. As is good training. But both are available if you search them out."
With the National Aesthetic Accreditation Agency providing a more standardized approach to cosmetic medicine, and her new book, The Complete Guide to Compliance in Aesthetic Medicine, Rood hopes to make the search for consistent and accurate resources and training easier.
Rood says, As competition is growing, the issue of compliance is only going to be more scrutinized over time. Understanding it is the key to practice survival.
The book can be purchased on Amazon or from your iOS device through the iTunes store for just $39.99.
