Leveling up has increasingly been referred to in society, particularly in relation to moral, social and economic dimensions. Essentially, it means that no one should be left behind. Not everyone benefits equally from service provision, in society in general, and in education in particular. While talent may be spread equally, opportunity is not. Leveling up is a mission to challenge that unfairness. Leveling up means giving everyone the opportunity to flourish. Leveling up means putting an end to inequality. In chiropractic education, leveling up means tackling inequalities in teaching and learning, meeting competences and ensuring that the delivery of education achieves and exceeds basic minimum standards. Leveling up is about raising the bar for all. Consistency, continuity and coordination are frequently referred to as the three ‘C’s of seamless patient care. Yet in considering the education of health professionals, it is arguably as important that these values are applied to training. The expectations of patients and the public are such that care received in one area of a country or continent should be broadly similar to that received in another patient of the country. This conference will tackle issues of consistency in chiropractic education. It will look at competencies, curriculum design, application of evidence, accreditation and testing, supporting faculty, meeting student expectations and achieving consistent graduate outcomes.

Conference objectives
The WFC / ACC Chiropractic Education Conference is the world’s premier event dedicated to chiropractic education and training. This outstanding conference will bring together leaders and international experts to discuss and debate emerging trends in chiropractic education and will showcase the latest evidence-informed educational research. Delegates will have the opportunity to listen to renowned international experts in the field of health care education and share best practices from around the world. Inspiring, interactive workshops will focus on enhancing the learner experience whilst equipping faculty to develop skills and knowledge by better understanding innovations in key areas of knowledge transfer. At the same time, other stakeholders in chiropractic education, including national association leaders, will develop fresh perspectives to inform national and international development of the chiropractic profession.

Who should attend?
This conference addresses subjects that are of importance not only to those who are engaged in leadership and teaching in chiropractic education and research but also to practicing chiropractors. The meeting will be of interest to leaders and faculty from chiropractic educational institutions and organizations as well as representatives of chiropractic associations and all interested in current developments in health care delivery systems relevant to chiropractic.

Following in his vision as the ‘Developer’ of the chiropractic profession and the professions’ first global ambassador, ICA is dedicated to the growth and development of the chiropractic profession worldwide. The ICA then known as the Chiropractic Health Bureau, and its members worked in the early years of the organization to achieve appropriate legal status in every U.S. state and to defend chiropractors and chiropractic in the process. ICA continues to address state laws, regulations and polices as needed to protect and promote the profession. ICA is a founding member of the World Federation of Chiropractic.

In the United States, nationally, ICA is recognized as the moderate voice of chiropractic focused on the preservation and promotion of the science, art, and philosophy of chiropractic as the integral guideposts to carry the profession forward as a leading force in healt care worldwide.

ICA leadership and members are among those who have led the evolution of healthcare in the 21st century to one that is focused on health promotion, not simply disease prevention. We are focused on improving and expanding the body of clinical and basic science research; in practice-based outcomes research; and in advancing the knowledge base of the whole person effect of regular chiropractic care.

Internationally, the ICA works with our colleagues to support advances in the profession at a global scale, and when invited by associations, organizations, or governments, to assist in the development of the profession at a country level.

In 2022 and going forward, we continue our work to remove barriers to access and bring an end to the unequal treatment of chiropractors in healthcare systems worldwide.
