Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2009 Dec;39(4):127-131
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes There is need for a detailed investigation on the availability and impact of chiropractic and allied healthcare services, on healthcare choice and healthcare costs, as well as the delivery and spatial distribution of chiropractors in Australia. The goal of this paper is to discuss the background and to propose our intent to conduct an interdisciplinary assessment and modelling of the determinant factors of adoption of healthcare choices in Australia. Due to the highly complex nature of selecting a healthcare choice amongst available alternatives in today’s world, it has been decided to design a research project using a new and innovative approach to the study of knowledge and knowledge systems in a social group. It was determined that the theory base of social interpretation of knowledge and knowledge implementation and change will drive this study. The study design will entail mixed methods including surveys, extensive document review, and a series of interviews of key stakeholders in the allied health professions within Australia. Studies such as this have potential to guide the planning process for federal and state governance bodies in chiropractic, in facilitating consumer choice between alternatives in healthcare. The knowledge gained through this study can drive healthcare change into the 21st century with chiropractic as a potential change agent.
