FREDERICTON – The New Brunswick Health Research Foundation and the Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation have announced a partnership of $1 million over five years for the establishment of the Canadian Chiropractic Research Foundation Chair in Best Practices for Musculoskeletal Health at the University of New Brunswick.
The Canadian Chiropractic Guideline Initiative (CCGI) understands that clinicians need easy and rapid access to information, tools and resources to become evidenced-informed practitioners. We provide clinicians with evidence at their fingertips, giving them user-friendly tools to find out how to best translate research evidence into practice, and thereby ensuring patients receive optimal care.
Brenda Miller had been suffering from debilitating back and leg pain since her vehicular accident in 2005. She was having difficulty walking and was constantly taking a cocktail of pain medications – Baclofen, Naproxen, Cymbalta, Pregabalin, Percocet, even Marijuana – just to help her manage through the day. Her condition has significantly affected her mobility that she had to quit her job and go on the Ontario Disability Support Program.
It started as a simple idea during contract negotiations between a chiropractic association and a provincial government. After many years of meetings to review feasibility issues, the Manitoba Chiropractors Association, the Manitoba Provincial Government (Family Services Department) and Mount Carmel Clinic (MCC) in inner-city Winnipeg eventually came to an agreement. They agreed that the inclusion of chiropractic services at MCC would be a welcome addition to the current health services provided there.
Drs. Megan and Mailie Harris have taken almost the exact same path in their careers, albeit at different times. They went to the same university, took the same program, held the same summer jobs, operated a business together, went to the same chiropractic college, and now work in the same clinic. When it comes to practice, however, each sister assumes her own identity.
