Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2013 Jun;57(2):Online access only p 106-110
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article
Excerpt: History affords us numerous examples of circumstances where those fighting on the same side have conspired to harm each other, even to inflict mortal damage. This tendency has displayed itself throughout the history of the chiropractic profession, with disagreements over philosophy and nomenclature dominating the agenda1 whilst external detractors have looked on with the smug satisfaction of knowing that internal tensions are perpetuating division and stunting growth.
In an era of health system transformation it is clear that the climate is changing.Just as western society has gradually realised the impact of global ecological change and has adapted its behaviour accordingly, so must we as chiropractors realise that the healthcare environment is changing. While this presents challenges, it also gifts us unprecedented opportunities to evolve. What is essential is that we accept that climate change is happening and commit ourselves to bravely tackling the issues before us.
