  Title The politics of chiropractic research [editorial]
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2011 Mar;55(1):20-22
Peer Review No
Publication Type Editorial
Abstract/Notes Excerpt: The number of chiropractors involved in full time research in Canada is very limited and the infrastructure and financial resources for conducting clinical chiropractic research is insufficient.

The current deficiency is not only a reflection of the downturn in the economy but a devaluation of the profession in terms of the delisting of provincial government funding, few opportunities for inter-professional collaboration, the absence of university affiliation and no new growth in public utilization.

Chiropractors have been excluded or marginalized by mainstream health care through the lack of a cohesive role identity, regulatory restrictions and limited spheres of competence. There are significant barriers to professional interaction and access to patient files, referral networks and diagnostic tests.
