June 5, 2013 — The Michigan Chiropractic Foundation (MCF) is announced that it awarded $20,000 to the Council on Chiropractic Guidelines and Practice Parameters (CCGPP) for the formation of their Rapid Response Resource Center (RC3), which will provide the foundation for CCGPP’s Rapid Response Team and provide resources for practitioners to use on their own, thus expanding CCGPP’s outreach to the profession.
CCGPP’s primary function for the past several years has been the Rapid Response Team, providing testimony, letters, and factual compilations to help individual doctors and chiropractic associations fight unreasonably denied treatment, as well as help associations establish inroads into insurance companies and help them address unreasonable policies relative to chiropractic on the part of insurers and other organizations.
Once the RC3 is established and all the information compiled by the CCGPP to date has been compiled under one roof, it will be an affordable, efficient way to add pertinent new research to the existing database and to have all this information available to any DC or chiropractic organization for their use.
The Rapid Response Resource Center will physically exist in the library at Logan College of Chiropractic, but all current scientific evidence will be stored electronically in a virtual library accessible through the CCGPP website and available to the public.
The foundation is very excited about the possibilities for this incredible research facility and is proud to be able to donate funds toward its completion. Stay tuned for more info on the R3C as it becomes available.
