Title Chiropractic hospital appointments in Australia – An international comparison
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2016 ;44(2):Online access only p 142-163
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

This paper outlines a number of instances involving chiropractors holding positions in medical hospitals. While it portrays this relationship in Australia, it also reviews developments in other countries. There has, however, been only limited involvement of chiropractors in Australian hospitals. In contrast to other countries, the involvement has not involved in-patient management, except where the chiropractor has obtained further medical qualifications. The degree of participation has been essentially in a minimal number of hospital-associated research projects. Given the strong trend internationally, Australia is way behind in this area with some countries initiating this trend almost 30 years ago and some 20 countries utilising chiropractic health services in this way.
