  Title A wellness system: The challenge for health professionals
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 1993 Jun;37(2):97-103
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Beginning with the Lalonde Report, the Federal Government has consistently articulated a new perspective for health whose objective is to move away from a preoccupation with disease and move towards promoting health and wellness. Taken seriously this perspective would logically imply either a new kind of “health” delivery system (a wellness system) and/or a new kind of practitioner, a wellness practitioner. With regard to the latter this would imply either “retooling” present illness practitioners or considering alternative wellness practitioners. There are cogent reasons why the former is not a realistic option. On the other hand, the universities have shown little enthusiasm to date for including those alternative health professionals whose practices already resemble that of a wellness practice, that is, are not focused on serious trauma or disease and that include such things as exercise, nutrition, posture, weight, stress management etc. Currently this includes, but is not limited to, chiropractors, osteopaths, naturopaths, homeopaths.
