  Title Using chiropractic philosophy to deliver relevant research: The example of the Australian Spinal Research Foundation grant funding process
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2010 Dec;40(4):151-153
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes The Foundation established its research funding process in 1984 and undertook a comprehensive review in 1999. The Board understood the importance of a rigorous process to ensure that the research projects it funded were of sound scientific methodology. The review identified that this process was excellent at ensuring the scientific merit of studies funded but there was a need to ensure priority could be given to those applications most relevant to chiropractic. There was a sense that, given the limited resources available within the profession, there was a need to focus on those areas that were unique to chiropractic and of most importance to practicing chiropractors. The Spinal Research Foundation Board therefore made two key changes with the express intention of applying chiropractic philosophy as a measure of relevance for proposed research. These two changes were (i) to include specific reference to placing priority to fund studies that address vertebral subluxation and/or general health; and (ii) to add an assessment of all applications by a panel of practicing chiropractors who ranked the proposals based on their relevance to the stated priorities for that particular funding year. These two changes reflect the application of chiropractic philosophy to the funding of research for the express purpose of keeping research relevant to chiropractic and chiropractors.
