founded by association leaders and practicing chiropractors with a mission to “elevate” their profession.
Inspired by Change
The changing healthcare market is re-defining success into one word: Outcomes. Several years ago, the group recognized that chiropractors would need to be equipped with current “best practices” in order to achieve the best clinical outcomes.
Collecting "Best Practices"
They connected clinical leaders and diplomates from nearly every chiropractic specialty to synthesize more than 5000 journals and texts into evidence-based synopses for 85 of most common musculoskeletal conditions.
Now, the most pertinent topics of this project have been condensed into practical CME presentations that provide your conference attendees with real-world “best practices” to use on Monday morning- thereby improving clinical outcomes (and the health of our profession).
Presentations may be combined or tailored to meet your needs.
