  Title Primary care provider, portal of entry and the disconnect in chiropractic education, training and practice
Journal J Philos Princ Pract Chiropr. 2017 ;2017(1):Online access only p 1-4
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Background: Chiropractic trade organizations, educational institutions and the Council on Chiropractic Education describe chiropractic services as the provision of primary care. Only one recognized trade organization does not describe chiropractic in this fashion.

Objective: To briefly review the literature on chiropractic, primary care and portal of entry concepts.

Discussion: The profession expresses confusion on whether or not it has the training, education and scope of practice to provide primary care services.

Conclusion: Chiropractic educational institutions need to clearly define what aspects of primary care they are training graduates to provide and make this clear to trade organizations and state regulatory boards in order to protect the public health.
