  Title Clinical case reports and patients as subjects of scholarly enquiry
Journal Chiropr J Aust. 2021 ;48(1):14-30
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Chiropractic case reports that describe the clinical care of one patient or of several patients with similar conditions provide valuable insight to the practicing clinician and offer information for the design of clinical trials. Clinical case studies are not generally subject to federal ethics regulation or review and oversight by research ethics committees protecting human research subjects. Nonetheless, journal editors sometime require authors of clinical case reports to provide proof of evaluation by independent ethics committees. We describe the procedures, guidance, and materials that our institution developed for clinician-authors to obtain ethics documentation and facilitate the publication of their clinical case reports.
