Abstract/Notes Patient centred care (PCC) involves an equitable relationship between the patient and the clinician. The basis of decision making within this relationship should be based on clinical evidence and “what is best for the individual patient.” This is often seen to be at odds with the evidence-based model of clinical practice that is currently considered the most favourable by policy makers and educators.

The chiropractic profession, which considers itself “patient-centred”, has long been associated with high levels of patient satisfaction. In this paper, we seek to explore the ideas of patient-centred and evidence-based patient care and how they apply to chiropractic practice. The purpose of this paper is to introduce and clarify the idea of patient centred care. The aim is to demonstrate how development of PCC in clinical practice can be beneficial both clinician and patient by allowing the former to influence, rather than control, behaviour and to develop a two-way partnership. However, the current authors argue that the hesitancy or inability to use external, critically appraised evidence to guide the decision making processes and a mono-therapeutic approach to patient management appear to be possible barriers to true PCC within the chiropractic profession.
