FRENCH CHIROPRACTORS’ RESEARCH NETWORK
IFEC AND AFC CREATED A RESEARCH NETWORK BASED ON CHIROPRACTORS’ PROFESSIONAL PRACTICE
The launch of the research network implies the creation of a database of French chiropractors who may be involved into research projects from their practice. Your registration in the network does not oblige you in any way.
Your agreement to be involved will be asked for each project you may be invited to join in the future.
We know how precious your time is in your cabinet. That’s why we will do our best to make your participation in research projects not too time-consuming.
Your participation is important: you will contribute to improve the quality of knowledge and the level of proof of our daily practice.
Moreover, the outcome of the research works will be shared with you every year, through an annual written review or lectures during professional symposiums.
First, we’ll lead a study on patients who come in chiropractic practices. Then, various works could be performed such as the study of prognostic factors associated with the success of chiropractic treatments, the study of the diagnosis process or the study of the efficiency of chiropractic treatments…
The first project will start in fall 2020. The topic will be the description of chiropractic practices’ patients.
It is a crucial work that will help us to prioritize our future research works.
In compliance with the Law n° 78-17 of 6 January 1978 relative to Information Technology and Data Protection, we grant a full anonymity of all the collected data related to practitioners or their patients.
If you like to participate and contribute to the improvement of scientific knowledge on chiropractic in France, you are welcome to join the network.
