It’s time to RAISE the Standards
It’s been interesting times for Chiropractic here in Australia to say the least….
There has been a lot of talk (and disagreements…ok – maybe arguments) among chiropractors, respective leaders, professional associations, special interest groups and respective governing bodies…all of which is being carefully monitored and observed by the very people who strategically orchestrated it…
However, this is no different in Australia, Canada, US, UK or anywhere in the world.
There is ONE thing that is very clear to me…
It is TIME to RAISE THE STANDARD.
We need to raise the STANDARDS in RESEARCH.
We need to raise the STANDARDS in PATIENT CARE.
We need to raise the STANDARDS in OUR PRACTICE.
We need to raise the STANDARDS in OUR BEHAVIOURS.
We need to raise the STANDARDS in OUR COMMUNICATION.
…And we also need to recognise that ALL of this takes TIME. Demanding ALL of this immediately is no different than patients demanding their symptoms to magically disappear (This is just an analogy… don’t read too much into this).
Everything takes TIME. Everything.
