Attitudes of Practicing Chiropractors research project

At the request of the CCOA, Dr. Kent Stuber, a Parker University researcher, will conduct an independent survey of Alberta chiropractors evaluating the attitudes of practicing chiropractors toward the International Clinical and Professional Chiropractic Education Position Statement and Evidence-based practice.

There is currently no research considering the attitudes of practicing chiropractors to the International Clinical and Professional Chiropractic Education Position Statement. The role of a regulator, such as the CCOA, is to establish policies that set professional standards for professional practice beneficial to the public. The study will inform the regulator and other partners on the attitudes of practicing chiropractors when developing policy that supports safe, competent and ethical chiropractic care.

New AHS Program Helps Improve Access to Specialists

The Alberta Facilitated Access to Specialized Treatment (FAST) program allows family doctors and other healthcare providers to send referrals for urology or orthopedic surgery to a central team, who can then assign the referral to a specialist with the shortest waitlist. The FAST program will expand to all surgical specialties in the upcoming months. To support the roll out of FAST, providers and patients are invited to share their referral and consultation experiences through an online survey. Click here to read the News Release. 

Referring providers, find out how to use FAST in your area: North Zone Edmonton Zone / Central Zone  / Calgary Zone / South Zone
