Chiropractic Technique Seminars: "Let the Buyer Beware"

Continuing education is a necessity for chiropractors to stay well-informed and provide optimal care for their patients. However, little material has been made available to the practicing chiropractor to evaluate what may be learned at technique seminars.

This article presents a comprehensive foundation for the chiropractor to apply to technique seminars, including:

* the basis for evaluating and learning from seminars;
* preliminary questions to use when considering a technique system seminar;
* evaluation criteria for presented material on chiropractic technique;
* "red flags" of a poor seminar/presentation;
* what to assess when critiquing the overall value of technique systems.

The ethical principles of health care demand that doctors of chiropractic be accountable for clinical decisions. Reviewing published research and attending technique seminars can maintain chiropractors status as well-informed health care professionals who are familiar with the most current and accurate information and integrate it into practice to best serve their patient base.
