  Title Sequential administration or sloppy shortcuts? Comparing Western and South Australia chiropractic statutory law
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2008 Dec;38(4):118-122
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes Registration and regulation of healthcare professionals and practices, such as in the medical, dental and physiotherapy professions, are essentially state government functions and responsibilities. Registration of chiropractors and regulation of chiropractic practices are also state government functions and responsibilities.

This paper summarises the history of government Acts which register chiropractors and regulate the practice of chiropractic in Western Australia and South Australia. It identifies, analyses and compares recent changes to these Acts and concludes that In Western Australia these changes update and develop sequential elements of administrative principles established in preceding healthcare legislation, while in South Australia changes constitute substantive compromise in the registration of chiropractors and regulation of its practices.

The need for constant vigilance in the development of new emerging chiropractic legislative enactment, supported by historical understanding and appropriate representation of the chiropractic profession is underlined.
