September 10, 2010 — The Council on Chiropractic Education (CCE) has a few proposals that will drastically affect the future of chiropractic. Your simple, prompt action is needed. Dr. Gerry Clum has succinctly summarized the CCE proposal in the following clipping from his positional paper found at www.lifewest.edu/ccerevisions.shtml.
Dr. Clum sums up these following concerns:
The items in the new CDC revision indicate an attempt to move the profession:
a. Toward the Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine perspective,
b. Away from the use of the term subluxation,
c. Toward the inclusion of drug therapy,
d. Away from being a drugless discipline,
e. Toward a generalized common definition of primary care as used in primary medicine, and
f. Away from any definition of chiropractic and what a chiropractor does.
