May 13, 2010 — The Best Practices and Practice Guidelines (BPPG), one of the most valuable resources a practicing chiropractor can have is now available in a 640-page, soft-cover book.
Developed under the auspices of the International Chiropractors Association (ICA), these are the most thorough guidelines ever produced by the chiropractic profession. These guidelines have already been adopted by many state associations and stand as an important component of what can be defined as “Chiropractic Standard of Practice.” The BPPG has been accepted for inclusion by the National Guideline Clearinghouse.
The Best Practices and Practice Guidelines can be useful to all chiropractors because they are not restricted to any specific technique. According to Dr. Gary Walsemann, ICA president, these guidelines can serve as a valuable reference for delivering quality Chiropractic care.
The BPPG can serve the practicing doctor of chiropractic in many different ways, including:
• Providing varying levels of evidence for more than 300 different health conditions, using a variety of chiropractic methods;
• Being a useful resource to help make everyday clinical decisions;
• Being a valuable reference when defending your patient care; and
• Being used in report of findings to show patients that chiropractic is beneficial for more than low back pain and neck pain.
The BPPG is available for $99 through the ICA. To order it online, visit www.chiropractic.org or call ICA sales at 800-423-4690. For questions on the guidelines (methodology, implications, etc.) contact Best Practices and Practice Guidelines Editor Dr. Len Siskin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
