    New CCE Standards Could Drastically Change Chiropractic

    Advertisements



    The CCE (the organization that oversees chiropractic education in the U.S) has proposed some simple yet dramatic changes to the definition of "chiropractic". It still needs to be approved, something I am not exactly betting will happen, but if they adopt these new guidelines, it could bring drastic changes to chiropratic in the near future. However, the more regressive elements in this field have voiced strong opposition to this proposal, so getting the votes to approve this might be a challange.

    Simply put, it would move chiropractic in a direction that many of us on here have been advocating for awhile now.

    the party is not over but the band is getting tired

    this would be huge; and as i have said before the only way really that chiropractic can survive as a PROFESSION. the profession will not survive the future changes in health care with only the hyper-salesmen as the DCs. chiropractic MUST change.

    Something of interest for USHADOC, it is believed that passing these standards could revive the old DCM degree. I might have been wrong declaring it dead over the summer.

    If this were to pass, it could be the biggest change we have seen in chiropractic in decades.

    if this passes it will rewrite and redefine the purpose, scope and practice of chiropractic in the future. an evolution if you will. long over due.

    That would be amazing but since I have heard nothing on this issue since November, I had just assumed it didn't pass.

    However, a quick look at the CCE's website does show they approved something.

    http://www.cce-usa.org/uploads/2011-...nouncement.pdf

    I don't see many details on what. All it says is that chiropractic colleges will have more flexibility in their curriculum but at the end of that PDF document there, it says the schools will be notified some point this month and then they will post what they did on their website after that.


    Something to watch, I do believe.

    AgActual: I'm near 99% sure they did pass all the changes they wanted to. That is, removal of the word subluxation, definition of chiropractic as drug and surgery free removed, and incoming GPA raised from 2.5 to 3.0 effective 2014.

    This is of course WONDERFUL news.

    CCE changes & future of Chiropractic

    I totally agree That would be great for your profession, perhaps split the profession into two:

    Straight = DC (only find and adjust "subluxations." hands on ONLY approach)
    Mixers / Evidence Based = DCM (Dx & Rx, scope similar to MD/DO, focus on Primary Care.)
