  Title An RMIT University perspective on chiropractic research
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2011 Mar;41(1):9-12
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Abstract/Notes This article summarises a presentation given at the Australasian College of Chiropractors’ Research Summit entitled Strategic Research: Future Directions for Chiropractic Research in the 21st Century held on 6 November 2010 at Macquarie University in Sydney.

The Discipline of Chiropractic at RMIT University considers it is well placed to contribute to the Australian research agenda for chiropractic. A strategy that has facilitated this capacity is the Discipline’s shift towards educational research that explores the changing practices for learning and teaching within the chiropractic program. This shift has resulted in the engagement of many more academics in critical scholarship resulting in productivity as published papers and active projects. The academic members of the Discipline are encouraged to find their own place on a continuum from classroom inquiry to rigorous educational research and targeted clinical research. This strategic direction is aligned with that of the University which is to “aspire to international excellence in research in its chosen fields and aligned to and working with our global network of partnerships, industries and cities.” This paper provides a summary of scholarly activity and research reported within the Discipline in November 2010 and concludes with the author’s current concepts on ways chiropractic researchers may better address the need to understand the impact of chiropractic’s unique clinical approach. Two qualitative methodologies are briefly described; Phenomenological research which relates observed phenomena to each other, and Grounded Theory which attempts to tease out one or more theories from the collected data. Qualitative methods provide a side view of what may be happening in the clinical environment to allow a better understanding and the subsequent formation of better quantitative research questions, especially in regard to “whole-person” research.
