Panel Discussion: Integration of Chiropractic Care into Mainstream Healthcare

Course Description
Chiropractors often feel isolated in the discussion of mainstream healthcare, believing an equal seat at the healthcare table is far-fetched. This class will prove that this isolated thinking is a way of the past, and the future of healthcare depends on the integration of chiropractic, now more than ever; yet it is our job to communicate this effectively. We have invited a panel of doctors to illustrate how documentation and record keeping are communication tools that allow us to interact with the allopathic community. Documented results from Gallup Poll #3 will be followed by 4 chiropractors focusing on different areas of interactive success between chiropractors and the medical model, showcasing how the collaborative community has the greatest benefit for patients. If chiropractic is to take a prominent seat at the healthcare table, it will have to do so with research, statistics, an established outlined path as described by the 5 participants in this panel, and in a spirit of cooperation. With the climate of society and ever-changing-healthcare, the time is NOW!

CAs will leave this session with tips, scripts, and more confidence than ever when having these essential conversations.
