Exerpt: It is a challenge for educators of chiropractors to effectively teach differential diagnosis for non-neuromusculoskeletal conditions common to primary care practice. It is simply the nature of the beast and the low frequency of presentation of such conditions to chiropractic teaching clinics that creates this challenge. Many institutions rotate interns through outpatient settings where these presentations may be common, but a drawback is the sporadic nature of such exposure and the potential lack of a reasonable clinical framework to support learning.
This work by Jamison goes a long way toward providing a good framework and should be considered by all chiropractic institutions as a resource to support the learning of differential diagnosis. The text itself is simple enough, being divided into three parts: principles, complaints, clinical conditions.
