Delegates at a high-powered conference held in Miami October 29 – November 1 on the opportunities for chiropractic in changing healthcare systems in the USA and internationally, heard that chiropractic was well-positioned for substantial growth.

This would depend, delegates were told by experts, upon whether doctors of chiropractic could deliver superior patient results and satisfaction at a competitive cost in the prevention and management of common neuromusculoskeletal disorders.  Increasingly, health systems are requiring and rewarding delivery of value, rather than paying attention to the professional designation of the provider.  This provides new opportunity for chiropractors.

The theme of the conference, held by the World Federation of Chiropractic (WFC) and Association of Chiropractic Colleges (ACC) and jointly hosted by the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and International Chiropractors’ Association (ICA), was Chiropractic Education for a Changing Healthcare Environment.
